How to make this spiced and sparkling apple cider mocktail
Use a microplane grater to carefully grate the fresh ginger root. If you don't have a microplane grater, use a knife to mince the ginger finely.
Add apple cider, freshly grated ginger, cinnamon sticks, and cloves (if using) to a small pot. Bring to a gentle boil for 2 minutes. Turn off the heat and let it sit to "steep" and cool to room temperature.
Remove the cinnamon sticks from the apple cider mixture. Using a fine mesh strainer, carefully strain the mixture into a tall glass to remove the chunks of ginger.
Add ice and sparkling water to the glass. Gently stir to incorporate.
Top with fresh sliced apple, and enjoy!
The freshly sliced apple gives you something to nibble on while you sip this deliciously spiced drink. Don't leave it out!
