Carmel apple cider

Starbucks' Caramel Apple Cider is truly the nectar of the gods. I asked a Starbucks' employee the other day how he makes it and this is what he told me for a large size:

Cinnamon syrup- a couple of squirts (sold in the store

Treetop premium apple juice

Whipped cream

Carmel syrup drizzled on top

Blend cinnamon syrup with apple juice.

Top with whipped cream and Carmel syrup.
I actually will mix it in my hot coco maker. If you all don't have one you should get one.
I love this stuff and I am so glad that I now know the correct recipe. I have tried to make it before but something was always missing. (The Cinnamon syrup)
If you all make it let me know how you like it!
So what is your favorite hot drink on a cold day? Share the recipe please..

My favorite Fall/Winter drink is Miss Tracy's Wonderful Wassail.

If you have not tried it before, wait until the leaves turn colors, the crunch of frost is on the grass, and prepare for a real treat.

I like Stephens Mint Hot Chocolate, or pretty much any of their flavors, soooooo--- yummy!!

I also like the homemade wassail that I make at christmas, problem is it makes so much and I am pretty much the only one who drinks it.

I love hot cocoa with globs of marshmallow fluff in it!!! Don't tell anyone but I keep going back and putting more globs of fluff in over and over again!!! LOL (not a good habit!)

This sounds delicious! I will have to make some for my hubby, he will love it!

Sounds delicious! I'm leaning more toward iced drinks right now, but as the weather cools and the holidays approach - I love Starbucks Peppermint Mochas. Yum. :)

I like chammomile tea, but I'm not a big hot drink drinker. :] I love Starbucks Green Tea Frappachino!
