One of my most treasured autumn memories from college is visiting my roommates’ local apple orchard. After spending the day picking apples and exploring the orchards, we would always end up feasting on its homemade apple-apple desserts. Since graduation, I rarely go home, so I’ve re-created one of my favorites off its menu: apple cider slushies!
These slushies are not too far from a traditional hot apple cider recipe (actually, the only extra ingredient is ice). When making these, just keep an eye on your slushies and check to ensure they aren’t frozen solid. You should be able to poke a spoon and still have cider ice crumbled over it Top with a few sprinkles of apple cider, whipped cream and cinnamon.
Why not switch up your fall drink with a cool refresher since there are so many warm autumn drinks out there?
Double-check that your serving glasses are freezer safe.
- Apple cider 6 cupsLemon and orange peels 2 cinnamon sticks1/4 cup Maple syrup
- Heap apple cider for hot baking. In a large pan, spoon apple cider and maple syrup in and give it a light shake.
- Place cinnamon sticks and fruit peels in either a stove-safe strainer or cheese cloth and place into the apple cider mixture. This can keep for 5-10 minutes or until cider is hot. Once at desired temperature, remove from heat and let it rest. Apple cider should cool to room temperature after about 30 minutes.
- Pour the cider into six serving glasses and fill up only 3/4 of them up. The remaining five should be put into the freezer until semi-frozen, about two hours later.
- Dibble the frozen cider with a spoon to turn it into shaved cider ice. Top with 1-2 tablespoons of apple cider from the saved glass that did not go in the freezer and give it a light shake. Add whipped cream and cinnamon and enjoy!
