Author Notes: Here is a recipe that embraces the bounties of the season, guaranteed delicious and believe it or not, nutritious! This drink includes the juice of tart apples; a potent deliverer of antioxidants, vitamin C and potassium! Tart, green apples have almost twice as much potassium as their red counterparts.Susan E. Levy

Serves: makes 10 – 6 oz servings

  • 5 cups (40oz) apple cider
  • 2 ½ cups sour-apple juice*
  • ¾ cups pure cranberry juice (100% cranberry, no blends)
  1. *To make fresh sour-apple juice, juice 4-5 tart apples (ex: Granny Smith) with the skins intact. If you don’t have a juicer, you can also use a blender. Skin the apples and “liquefy” with ½ cup water per apple.

  3. When ready to serve, pour mixture over ice in a Mason jar, garnish with a slice of tart apple or a cinnamon stick (optional).
