Sparkling cider is a New Year’s Eve tradition in my home, but instead of buying it, like I used to, I now make my own. It’s a lot cheaper that way.

Here’s the recipe, if you’d like to make some, too.

Sparkling Cider Recipe

Prep Time:

2 mins

Ingredients:

(1) can frozen apple juice concentrate
(1) liter seltzer water (make it in a Soda Stream, or buy a bottle)

What You Do:

Apple Juice Concentrate

Pour the apple juice concentrate into a pitcher.

Making Seltzer in a Soda Stream

Then, 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.

Pitcher of Sparkling Cider

Serve your sparkling cider immediately, or chill it 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. Easy!

Soda Stream sent me my soda maker several years back, but I see them all the time at thrift stores, so they’re easy enough to pick up on the cheap, if you’d like to add one to your kitchen collection.

  1. We’ve been using a can of the Welch’s frozen white grape juice concentrate instead of apple. It tastes just like their sparkling white grape juice to me and so much cheaper!
