Apple Cider Floats

 My husband is picky about his apple cider, claiming the local juice tastes fake. He prefers his from a specific apple house in north Georgia. So when the kids and I spent a week there earlier this month, he begged for us to bring him back his favorite apple cider.

I wondered how we would do this. Our trip to the apple orchard was days before the trip home and on the way home, we planned to spend the majority of the day at the Georgia Aquarium. Thankfully, I found a pasteurized room-temperature half-gallon of the stuff and it made its way home safe and sound.

We also froze the good stuff and it thawed out and exploded before the return trip, spewing frosty brown juice all over myself and my dad as he helped load up our belongings. Thankful for him and plastic trash bags, we bagged it up and brought to home anyway. We had a special recipe planned for cider.

Normally, I promise, we’re fairly healthy eaters but we wanted to try a new version of ice-cream filled drinks. Not a root beer float or a black cow float, but an apple cider float?

Have you had one?

Sooooo good! But best reserved for a once-a-year treat like the fall because the sugar content is out of this world.

Don’t forget–the sugar content is immeasurable, so save this treat for the daytime and not right before we bed like we did. 😉

I hope you love it! What are some favorite seasonal treats of yours?
