Can I make a non-alcoholic apple cider cocktail?

You can easily make this a mocktail by adding ginger juice to apple cider. I would suggest adding a splash of ginger beer to give it a little something extra.

Tips for customizing an apple cider cocktail

  • – If you can’t find ginger juice, omit it or substitute 1/4 teaspoon fresh ginger paste, stirring well
  • – Add a dash of cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice
  • – Use warm apple cider for a hot apple cider cocktail
  • – Add a splash of club soda or ginger beer
  • – To make an apple cider pitcher cocktail, combine apple cider and whiskey in a 2:1 ratio, then add ginger juice to taste
  • – Add a few dashes of orange bitters
