Autumn Harvest Sparkling Cider
Autumn is the season of scents - pumpkin pie, fresh-picked apples and crisp leaves. And what a better time for a seasonal drink in celebration of nature's autumn bounty than fall? We decided to make our own sparkling apple cider that's quick and easy but has the sophistication for autumn-time entertaining. What we came up with was a mixture of the complex flavors of chai tea, the fun bubbly of sparkling water and the seasonal spice of local apple cider. We mixed ours with a few swirls in our decanter and served with our Moroccan tea glasses for color. Any left over sparkling cider easy stored in the fridge and the teak stopper helped maintain carbonation for future pours. Read more for our recipe.
