Sparkling Caramel Apple Cider

The only dinner beverage you’ll want!  Sparkling Cider is delicious and beautiful.  Serve for dinner and holidays!

“I was invited to be a brand representative for Sweet’N Low® and have been compensated for this post for SocialStars.  All opinions are my own.”  I’ve created the ultimate Sweet’N Low® Sparkling Caramel Apple Cider recipe #donthesitaste the whole family will love as part of a sponsored post for SocialStars.


Autumns’ arrival brings bubbly apple cider paired with warming spices, club soda and caramel.  Serve Sparkling Caramel Apple Cider in the evening and for dinner.

It’s that time of season again, where everything apple and pumpkin are in harvest.  In all honesty, making the transition from summer to fall is much more delightful with all the delicious pumpkin and caramel apple desserts, appetizers and drinks.  It’s one of my favorite seasons and not just for the weather but for the food as well. I’m most excited about being able to put a sweater on and warm up to a nice cup of hot apple cider, hot chocolate and pumpkin latte.

The aroma of spices like cinnamon and nutmeg in autumn make me want to bake all the time.  However, it’s nice to enjoy the simple things like making a beverage.  I’ve always loved when my parents served sparkling grape juice during dinner, as it was more common in fall and winter.  The inspiration for this evening drink comes from all those nights sitting at the kitchen table with my family.

I’m excited to share this evening drink because it’s one my family enjoys with a nice home cooked meal.  It’s also great to serve for a holiday dinner in place of other sparkling juice beverages as it has more of an authentic taste that you’ll love, especially with a good quality apple cider.
