2- Ingredient Homemade Sparkling Cider

2- Ingredient Homemade Sparkling Cider

It is almost New Year's Eve and I can hardly believe it. When you get older the years just fly by! The years that we lived at our farm, we celebrated with lots of food and games. We bought some plastic champagne glasses and Martinelli's Sparkling Cider to celebrate with the kids and family that dropped by.
The kids have grown up and we enjoy some that live close by and some grandkids. (We sure miss the kids and grandkids that live far away!!)
Now that we are on a retired income Martinelli's Cider can be expensive. Over at Winco they are $3-$4 a bottle and you only get a few glasses.
I am so glad I found this Homemade Delicious Sparkling Apple Cider Recipe. It is so easy to make and our family and friends love it!! I dare say it just might be better than the store-bought cider.
You only need TWO ingredients…
Apple Frozen Concentrate Juice
Garnish with some cinnamon sticks and fresh apple slices.
It makes a great family-friendly drink to toast in the New Year! I just know you will love it as much as we do.
Happy New Year!

If you store your sparkling cider in a sealed container, it’ll hold its carbonation, just like the store-bought stuff.
