Red White and Blue Sparkling Cider
This fruit-filled cider has quickly become one of my family’s most requested summer drinks. I’ve been making it almost every other day for the last month and it’s just so refreshing, a little sweet, and perfect for sippin’ on while sitting by the pool or for a summer party.
Don’t you just love it when everyone in your family loves something you make??? Well, this is it!
Sparkling Cider Drinks
Mashing up a little of the fruit in the bottom of the glass with some sugar is a great way to get the juices flowing and lets all the fruit juice come out and blend with the cider. It really takes this drink over the top.
I love the look of the whole fruit in the cups, so I only mash up about 1/3 of the fruit. But mashing the fruit is an important step to this drink. You don’t want to skip it!
I think the muddled fruit really needs that extra bit of sugar, but if you are worried that the drink has too much sugar then skip it. But, let me just say…this is a special drink and you aren’t drinking a ton of it or drinking one every day. It’s a party…so just have fun and enjoy it. It also works well with Splenda Granulated Sugar and you can’t tell it’s Splenda.
