Experiment With This Apple-Y Mocktail
In Aldi's Instagram video, the creator combines sparkling apple cider and Belle Vie caramel apple-flavored seltzer in a champagne flute, creating a fizzy, refreshing, and undeniably autumnal mixture. And Aldi clearly believes that cocktail garnishes aren't just for looks, as the creator adds a unique and sweet decorative rim. They then use caramel dip and crushed apple chips for a creamy and crunchy addition to the sparkling beverage.
This mocktail certainly looks festive and easy to enjoy. Still, there are plenty of ways to experiment with this drink to make it your own, from adding apples or cinnamon sticks for extra flavor and garnish to using different seltzer flavors. You can also swap out the caramel apple rim for a cinnamon-sugar rim. The possibilities for customizing this fall-inspired mocktail are endless, and it will surely be the perfect cherry — or, rather, apple — on top of any meal you're serving up this season.
