  • A couple of weeks ago, I shared a recipe for Caramel Apple Cider with Cinnamon Whipped Cream. This is a great and easy recipe for making a gourmet, delicious apple cider. But sometimes I want something that’s a lot faster to make, and in those cases, I make this super easy instant Apple Spiced Cider.

    Super Easy Instant Apple Spiced Cider

    Super Easy Instant Apple Spiced Cider Recipe

    Super Easy Instant Apple Spiced Cider
    Recipe type: Drinks
    Serves: 1
    It doesn't get much easier than instant.
    • 1 package Alpine Spiced Cider Apple Flavor Drink Mix
    • ~1 Tbsp. Starbucks Cinnamon Dolce Syrup
    1. Add hot water and brew the apple cider according to instructions.
    2. Add ¾-1 Tbsp Starbucks Cinnamon Dolce Syrup. More for more spice. Less for less spice.
    3. Stir and enjoy!

    You can buy the Alpine Spiced Cider Apple Flavor Drink Mix online on Amazon and the Starbucks Cinnamon Dolce Syrup online at Starbucks or from your local Starbucks store.

    P.S. For a sugar-free apple spiced cider, you can also use Starbucks Sugar-Free Cinnamon Dolce Syrup and Alpine Sugar-Free Spiced Apple Cider.

    I’ve been using the Alpine Spiced Cider for a few years as a nice “instant” apple cider mix. While I liked it, there was something missing…that extra bit of oomph or spice flavor that I often look for in a spiced cider. Then I recalled how much I like Starbucks’s Caramel Apple Spice.

    Do you know what Starbucks uses to add the “spice” to their Caramel Apple Spice? If you guessed “their Cinnamon Dolce Syrup” then you get a virtual gold star. If it was good enough for Starbucks, I wondered how it would work with my instant cider mix.

    Just add a few pumps (about 3/4-1 Tbsp) of the Cinnamon Dolce Syrup to the cider and bah-da-bing, bah-da-boom – Super Easy Instant Apple Spiced Cider that has a lovely cinnamon spice flavor without any simmering or brewing.

    It doesn’t get much easier than that.

    How to Make Starbucks Vanilla Chai Tea Latte
    A few years ago, I did a comparison between Starbucks Vanilla Chai Tea Lattes and Dunkin Donuts Vanilla Chai Lattes. Years later, Vanilla Chai is still one of my favorite hot drinks to enjoy. For just as many years, I’ve been trying to make Starbucks Vanilla Chai Tea Lattes at home. I’ve tried various recipes… Continue reading →

    Decadent Hot Chocolate Recipe

    Decadent Hot Chocolate
    While the Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate will always have a special place in my recipe book, sometimes I want a cup of hot chocolate that is a little more decadent. Something a little richer with more of a chocolate flavor. When that happens, there’s only one way to make chocolate – using “traditional” ingredients of… Continue reading →
    Grasshopper Iced Mocha
      When I moved, all of a sudden the nearest coffee went from 2 minutes away to 20 minutes away. Popping out to a cafe became more of a journey than a quick stop, which meant I had to find some alternatives for getting my afternoon pick-me-ups. Before, I would head out and get one… Continue reading →

      “In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.
