Apple cider is the perfect cool weather drink. Fruity but not overly sweet, it lends the perfect base for spice mixes and other bold-flavored ingredients. Skip store-bought cider mixes, which can be full of added sugars and preservatives. Instead, make yourself a custom drink by choosing a bold spice blend and adding ingredients like ginger or cranberry. Whether you choose a dry cider or a bubbly bottle, these hard cider recipes will be a hit at your next Fall or Winter get-together. If wanting a kid-friendly version, just substitute in alcohol-free cider.
