Instructions

Pour cider, lemon juice, and cinnamon in a loaf pan, whisking to combine. Freeze for 1 hour. 

Remove the cider mixture from the freezer and use a fork to scrape the slushy mixture, so it doesn't turn into a giant ice cube. Once fully scraped and stirred, return it to the freezer for 1 hour more. 

Remove the cider mixture from the freezer once again, using a fork to scrape and stir it into a consistency like shaved ice. If it's not frozen enough for your taste, pop it back in the freezer for another 45 minutes. Otherwise, spoon into 2 glasses and garnish each rim with a mini doughnut. 

Apple Cider Floats

No real recipe, but here’s how to do it:

Scoop vanilla ice cream into a clear mug and pour equal parts sparkling apple cider & fresh local apple cider in.

Top with whipped cream, an apple slice, a sprinkle of ground cinnamon, a cinnamon stick, & caramel sauce.
