Getting into the holiday spirit…

Nothing reminds me of the holidays better than a nice hot mug of caramel apple cider!  Being a California girl at heart (I’m currently residing in NY), I can’t say that I look forward to winter in the freezing cold New York.

Fortunately, my husband introduced me to the Starbucks caramel apple cider – my winters have not been the same since!  Unfortunately, this heavenly drink costs so much, that I can’t justify going there everyday to have some.  So my husband decided that we make our own…

Here’s our version (which has to be quick because I’m super impatient):

  • Ingredients:  apple cider, whipped cream and caramel syrup
  • Process:  pour apple cider into a microwave safe mug, heat for about 2 minutes, add whipped cream and drizzle caramel syrup on top
  • Drink while hot, finish, and repeat (as many times as you want)

I’m sure there are other (maybe better) versions out there, but this one works the best for me…

  • Ohhhhhhhhhh, yummmmmmmmy.

    We make hot buttered rum many years, so cozy in front of a blazing fire w/friends and/or family…


  • I’ve had hot apple cider but not with the other goodies on it. This sounds yummy! Thanks for sharing!

    Wow…that looks SO good!!!

  • That sounds delish!
    I’d never heard of it – maybe it hasn’t found it’s way to the Starbucks down under yet 🙂

  • This is a seriously awesome recipe!
