This weekend was so busy by the time I stopped spinning it was Tuesday! I definitely needed a little fall fun and some downtime. This little sugary delight was a great idea. It is a simple, easy Autumn dessert that’s definitely a crowd pleaser. I always thought Apple Cider Floats
Even my fiance who’s not a big fan of apple cider loved these and like I said it’s a super quick 5-minute recipe.
Here’s what you need:
- 1/2 cup Ginger Ale, Ginger Beer or Lemon-Lime Soda
- 1 cup of Unfiltered Apple Cider
- Ice cream of your choice (I recommend Vanilla or Pumpkin)
1.) So let’s get to float makin’! Get yourself a nice tall glass and pour a cup of your unfiltered Apple Cider right in! Bonus: If you’re looking to make this a “spiked” float, you can always add just a shot of Apple Pie Moonshine, or Apple Jack brandy to give this a little kick.
2.) Then pour your 1/2 of Ginger Beer in as well. I like the stronger tasting Ginger Beer from Trader Joes, it gives it more of a homemade kinda taste. If you’re not a fan of brewed ginger beer you can use regular ginger ale or even just some kind of lemon-lime soda.
3.) Then add a scoop (or two….or three??? depending on your sweet tooth) and sprinkle a little nutmeg and cinnamon on top.
4.) Drizzle some caramel sauce on there and you’re all set to enjoy a delicious fall-flavored treat!
Try the recipe and let me know what you think! My fiance and I had a great night with these and it was the perfect treat after a long day at work.
