New Cider Recipes To Welcome In Fall
After such a scorching summer, we don't think we've ever been so excited for fall. We're especially looking forward to cozy sweaters, bright yellow and red leaves slowly falling and our first glass of warm cider. Regular apple cider is delicious, but this year we're whipping up one of these unique ciders, made with fresh fall produce, instead!
Spiced pumpkin, pear and lemon and cinnamon plum ciders are fabulous variations to the traditional spiced apple cider. Served warm with spiced rum, these cocktails are perfect for cold tailgates and chilly autumn nights!
Pear and lemon cider recipe
Pears, which are harvested at the end of the summer and early fall, are one of the most versatile fruits out there. Because of their milder disposition, pears pair perfectly with the bold citrus flavor of the lemon and the spicy flavor of the allspice. This cider recipe is delicious cold or warm, so serve however you'd like!

Spiced pumpkin cider recipe
If you love Starbuck's pumpkin spiced latte, you're going to love this cider. Made with luscious pumpkin and tons of spices, this cider is filled to the brim with fabulous fall flavor. *Note, this comes out thicker than traditional cider since it's made with pumpkin puree. For a thinner beverage, add more apple cider or water while you prepare it.

Cinnamon plum cider recipe
This warm, earthy cider recipe is made with dried plum juice (or prune juice), sweetened apple juice and spiced oranges and cinnamon. The apple juice sweetens up the prune juice and the spice lends the perfect fall flavoring to this unique cider!
