Yummy Caramel Apple Cider

We discovered this yummy drink at Starbucks a few years back. I made it a mission to figure out how to make it at home. Our family has enjoyed our homemade version for a couple years now and think it's better than Starbucks. It tastes best with homemade whipped cream instead of other substitutions, so it takes a little bit more work - but you won't regret it. It's sooooo good! You can use cinnamon extract in place of the Starbucks Cinnamon Dolce syrup. It's a sweet, hot drink - Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. First, put small glass mixing bowl & mixer beaters in freezer (for whipping cream, recipe to follow).
  2. Heat cider ingredients on stovetop or crockpot until steaming (if using cinnamon extract, you'll want to use a little less than recipe calls for).
  3. Divide into 8 mugs, top with whipped cream.
  4. Drizzle caramel syrup on top of whipped cream. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
  5. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
  6. WHIPPED CREAM: Using a small glass mixing bowl & mixer beaters (that have been chilled in the freezer) mix the whipped cream ingredients until it thickens. Wait to make this until the cider is ready to be served.

This is just like the Starbucks drink- very good copy! It's very sweet, next time I'll cut back on the brown sugar and add a bit more cinnamon syrup. Thanks for posting!
