Sparkling cider is a New Year’s Eve tradition in my home, but this year, instead of buying a bottle, we’ll be making our own. It just finally occurred to me how easy it is to make.
Here’s the recipe, if you’d like to make some, too.
Sparkling Cider Recipe
- (1) can frozen apple juice concentrate, thawed
- (1) liter seltzer water (make it in a Soda Stream, or buy a bottle)
What You Do:
Pour the apple juice concentrate into a pitcher.
Add the seltzer, and stir to combine. We have a Soda Stream, so I just carbonated a bottle of water to make my own seltzer.
Serve immediately, or chill for later. If you store your sparkling cider in a sealed container, it’ll hold its carbonation, just like the store-bought stuff.
Want to make sparkling grape juice or sparkling cranberry juice instead? Just swap in a can of grape or cranberry juice concentrate for the apple.
