This is a popular recipe used by many German families to make homemade sparkling apple cider. It's lighter than pure apple juice and it has fewer calories, so it's particularly popular in the summertime. You can use apple juice or apple cider, and it's equally delicious. You can also use bottled Club Soda or Seltzer (unflavored) for the carbonated base

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 ounces frozen apple juice concentrate
  • 36 ounces club soda (fill juice can 3 times)


  1. Empty undiluted frozen apple juice into decorative pitcher or 2-quart serving carafe. Fill juice container with club soda (3 times) and pour into the pitcher; stir well.
  2. Chill, and serve in fluted champagne glasses.

I normally purchase this for my Ds's on Thankgiving or New Years. I gave this to them for something something special for Halloween. They LOVED it. I think I'll try concentrated grape juice next time. I mixed this w/club soda.

I can't pronounce it, but I'm more than happy to drink it! We love sparkling apple cider/juice and it's the only way I'll drink apple juice. This was super easy, economical & so refreshing. Made exactly as directed for the Diabetic Forum's Harvest Moon Apple Festival. Thanks for posting, NwG! :D
