Apple Juice All Grown Up: Spiced Apple Fizz

apple_fizz2_

When I think of apple juice, grade school lunches and pre-nap snack time come to mind. But this beverage doesn’t have to be stuck in the past. With a few spicy adjustments, you can take the drink from kid-friendly to all for adults. It’s the perfect pairing for holiday party meals and sophisticated enough for a grown-up palette.


Here’s how you can make your very own:


Ingredients: 


1 liter apple juice
1 tsp cloves
2 cinnamon sticks
1/2 orange, zest
1 can Sprite or 7 Up
8 oz chapmagne (choose a sweeter one like Martini)

Instructions:


1. Pour the apple juice into a large pot and place over medium heat, along with the cinnamon sticks, cloves, and orange zest.
2. Bring to a boil and simmer for approximately 1-2 minutes. Let cool completely, then place into the fridge overnight so the flavours can further infuse.
3. Take out of the fridge and pour into a pitcher through a strain. Combine with Sprite or 7 Up and the champagne.


That’s all it takes –boil, cool, serve, and savour!


Style is served!
