Fresh ginger juice, apple cider, and sparkling water come together to make this refreshing drink perfect for any occasion!
In making better lifestyle choices and cutting down on juices and sodas and drinking more water instead, I have been coming up with beverages made with sparkling water. The result is this festive, refreshing cooler I know you’ll love!
Apple Ginger Sparkler is simply made from apple cider and fresh ginger juice, then topped with sparkling water just before serving for a fizzy drink.
Hosting a holiday party? You can even make the apple ginger mix ahead of time to fill a pitcher so that guests can pour in the sparkling water right before serving.
- 2 cups apple cider
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 2-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and sliced
- 3 cups sparkling water
- Ice cubes, for serving
- Combine apple cider, cinnamon, and ginger in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes.
- Let mixture cool to room temperature, then remove ginger slices and cinnamon sticks.
- To serve, fill glasses with ice. Pour 1 part apple ginger mix and top with 2 parts sparkling water.
I used my SodaStream Power Automatic Sparkling Water Maker to make the sparkling water for this drink. I go through bottles of sparkling water each week so using the sparkling water maker is definitely a more convenient and sustainable solution. To use, you just snap and lock the bottle onto the machine and with the push of a button you have carbonated water! It couldn’t get easier than that. And I love that there are three fizz levels to choose from.
SodaStream carries a variety of naturally flavored Sparkling Drink Mixes to add some pizzazz to your sparkling water. They come in delicious flavors like Lime Basil and Blackcurrant Lime from the Gourmet line, Berry Mix, and zero calorie Cranberry Raspberry.
The SodaStream machines and products can found online (you can get free shipping on all orders over $50) or at a retailer near you.
