Years ago I became addicted to Starbucks Caramel Apple Spice Cider. Warm, sweet and tart yumminess is all that comes to mind to describe this yummy drink. Come fall there is nothing more enjoyable than grabbing a warm cup at Starbucks while I am out shopping. One big problem, grabbing a Starbucks Caramel Apple Spice Cider every time I am out shopping could become quite expensive, ha ha!
A few years back a relative was hired as a Barista for Starbucks. As soon as I heard the news, I contacted her to fill me in on how to make my favorite fall drink. I finally had the ticket to savings, ha ha. I will admit that many times I tried making a similar drink at home by purchasing cider and trying to “doctor” it up. Every attempt was a failure.
DIY Starbucks Caramel Apple Spice Cider
I was amazed to learn Starbucks Caramel Apple Spice Cider is not made with Cider, in fact it is made with Motts Apple Juice. Additionally it has a secret ingredient that I was unaware of. That secret ingredient happens to be Starbucks Cinnamon Dolce Syrup. You can snag your very own bottle of Starbucks Cinnamon Dolce Syrup Bottle at your local Starbucks (I pay around $12 per bottle- pump included). Or if you prefer to shop online you can also purchase your Starbucks® Cinnamon Dolce Syrup (1-L.) with a pump included for just $9.95 plus $4.00 shipping from Amazon. So just $13.95 shipped. Then be ready to whip up your very own DIY Starbucks Caramel Apple Spice Cider. This bottle will last for a very long time (even if you are addicted like myself, lol). Each 12 oz cup of DIY Starbucks Caramel Apple Spice Cider takes 3 Pumps of syrup which is equivalent to about 3 Teaspoons of syrup. So stop by Starbucks and snag your Bottle of Cinammon Dolce Syrup or drop your order on Amazon and be all set for some warm and tart copycat Starbucks Caramel Apple Spice Cider.
