So, a few weeks back I was reading a cute blog that I enjoy popping in on called Two Twenty One.
Something in Chelsea's post caught my eye.
Apple Cider Slushies.
I've never had one... ever.
Immediately I knew that I wanted to make them. After experimenting, I decided to make a cinnamon simple syrup to make the slushie sweet... because I like my slushies super sweet, hello.
Anyway, I thought this would be a fantastic treat for "fall" on the island, since it is usually 85 and sunny year round.
I get to incorporate an autumn ingredient into a refreshing, icy treat.
My girls had so much fun drinking these...
... and so did I!
Apple Cider Slushies
- 2 Cups Crushed Ice
- 1-1/2 Cups Apple Cider
- 1/4 Cups Cinnamon Simple Syrup, Or To Taste (Recipe Below)
In a blender, pulse all ingredients until processed. Makes 2 servings.
Cinnamon Simple Syrup
- 1 Cup Sugar
- 1 Cup Water
- 2 Whole Cinnamon Sticks
In a small heavy duty saucepan, bring the sugar, water, and cinnamon sticks to a boil, stirring constantly. When the sugar has dissolved, remove from the heat and cool completely. Allow the cinnamon to steep while the syrup cools. Remove the cinnamon sticks and strain into a small container. Store tightly covered in the refrigerator. Use to brush cake layers or to sweeten drinks and cocktails.
