Blueberry & Pear Sparkling Cider Mocktail!

One thing about me is that I love being fancy and romanticising my life. I always have been like that and I always will be, even it’s just enjoying apple cider during the Fall season. I really enjoy cider in it’s purest form, although there’s no harm in making it even more amazing then it already is! Most of you may not know this, however, I’m truly not much of a drinker. Sure, I’ve had my fun when I was younger, but as I have gotten older I would rather relax and have an extremely marvelous Mocktail before anything else. Honestly, nonalcoholic cocktails can be so darn good that you are able forget that it doesn’t even contain any alcohol at all. Of course, you are welcome to adjust this beverage to however you would like even if that means adding some hard cider to it as well, or your favorite champagne for an insane bubble experience! This is perfect to make in a large pitcher for birthday parties this season, Thanksgiving day, or to enjoy with a charcuterie board! This flavors in this drink would definitely pair exquisitely with that.

How to create this cocktail that’s not actually a cocktail:

First step!

  1. Run a cocktail glass underneath water and then freeze it for at least 10 minutes.

Second!

2. Cover the rim of the glass with maple syrup. Just a thin coat for a hint of maple goodness so people can say “oh what is that?!”. Then, cover the syrup with a mixture of cinnamon and gold sugared sprinkles.

Grab yourself a cocktail shaker! If you do not have one or can’t get your hands on one make sure you just mix and muddled the fruit and ice with the apple cider exceptionally well. We aren’t using the shaker so much to mix liquid as we are to get the drink really cold and to allow the juice to come out the fruits.

  • Inside of the shaker glass throw in a handful of chopped apples and pears, along with a few blueberries for another punch of flavor.
  • Fill half of the glass with high quality apple cider. If you can purchase yours from the farm or make it homemade I would do that instead of just getting it from your local grocery store.

Fill the shaker up with ice, put the tops on, and shake for at least one minute!

Pour the infused apple cider into the rimmed cocktail glass and add a few ice cubes just to insure that it stays extra cold.

For the sparkling component pour some lemon lime soda over top of the cider.

  • I always choose this bubbly soda over anything else for Mocktails and cocktails. It’s just what I prefer, but if ginger ale is more your speed you can definitely pick that over this.

Garnish with a few more fresh blueberries and a a pretty pair slice and you’ll have the most incredible Mocktail to enjoy for the rest of November.

xoxo
