4 Starbucks Caramel Apple Cider

Tuesday, December 6, 2011

It's the most wonderful time of the year...when Starbucks has those delicious, limited-time-only seasonal drinks that I crave at all other times of the year.  One of them is their Caramel Apple Cider.  Aside:  Can someone please explain why this isn't on their drive-thru menu?  I can never remember what it's officially called and mumble about apple cider-something-or-other-that's-not-coffee.

I discovered an at-home clone recipe from blogger and fellow mom from E's class, Dixie Delights.  I have literally been stalking this recipe since A first posted it, and I finally got around to making my own after spending approximately $793 buying them at Starbucks.  My recipe ratios are just slightly different, only because I just have apple juice boxes which are 6.75 oz each.

- 2  juice boxes (6.75 oz) of apple juice (I always use no sugar-added like Apple & Eve)
- 4.5 - 5 pumps of Starbucks Cinnamon Dolce syrup (BTW, had you any idea they sell these at their coffee shops...for $8?!?!)
1.5 tsp of caramel.  I've been using a handy little tub of caramel sauce that came with pre-sliced apples ever since I became maimed by that apple slicer.  I'm not ashamed to admit I'm still afraid to use one right now.

But I digress.

In a small saucepan combine all ingredients and heat until just starting to bubble slightly.  Pour into your favorite large mug and roll your eyes in pure bliss.  It's that good.

Boy, that does sound good! My good friend used to work at Starbuck's and would often bring me one of these drinks since I'm not a coffee drinker. They were oh-so-tasty!

Absolutely delicious! Don't worry, I fumble and mumble over the tea names. It's almost looks like we are playing some sort of came while the employee is trying to guess which tea I actually want.

I am a new fan of your blog from the hop today!
