Makes 10 6 oz servings


  • 5 cups apple cider (40 ounces)
  • 2 ½ cups sour-apple juice
  • ¾ cup 100% cranberry juice (no blends)

To make fresh sour-apple juice:

  • Juice 4-5 tart apples, such as Granny Smiths, 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.


  • Combine all ingredients together in a 2-quart pitcher. Stir and chill for at least 1 hour.
  • When ready to serve, pour mixture over ice in a Mason jar. Garnish with a slice of tart apple or a cinnamon stick (optional).
