It's kinda a Family Tradition to have Sparkling Cider over Thanksgiving. This year we had a super large crowd over at my parents so we needed more Sparkling cider than normal... forget that, just my brother alone would drink several gallons of this stuff. ;)
Necessity is the mother of invention.
My sister showed me a wonderful secret she had learned: making Sparkling Cider from Apple Juice and Sprite!
Everyone say BRILLIANT!
It's so much cheaper than buying it & you get so much more for your $$$!
We did about a 50/50 combination, but you can adjust it to your taste.
My husband suggested adding some champagne to give it a slight kick at the end. Haven't tried that combination yet, but it is something to consider. :)
I LOVE the result & how easy it is! I wouldn't have been able to tell the difference if my sister hadn't told me it WASN'T Sparkling Cider!
Just in time for Christmas and New Years!
Just six days until Christmas! Don't forget the True Reason for the Season. He came to comfort our every heartache and to give us Hope. What a gift He gave us, coming down to earth to give his life for us. That love is what we celebrate.
Love you all. Hold your families tight.
