Pros: convenient packaging, easy to prepare, unique flavor
Cons: may contain too much sugar for some

We live in the Catskill region of New York State. That means we get cold hard winters. We're a family that enjoys being outdoors and playing hard. During the winter months we enjoy sledding and skiing and nothing warms you up or tastes better when coming in from the cold than this instant spiced apple cider drink from Alpine. Sure, we have cocoa lovers in the family but everyone loves when I switch it up and make warm spiced cider. My daughter says it's like having a cup of liquid apple pie.

I found the product a few years back as a seasonal item in one of the local markets. We were sold after the first taste. The drink has the sweet taste of apple cider

along with a gentle hint of mulling spices like brown sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon. It's simple to make because it's instant. Just empty a packet into a cup, add 6-8 ounces of hot water, and let the sipping begin. The product dissolves easily in the water and only takes a few minutes to make. The nutritional values are actually not too bad for a powdered drink mix. There are 80 calories and 20 sugar grams to a cup. There are artificial flavors added to the product and sugar is the first ingredient on the label but I am not bothered by it because it is a treat for me and my family. It's not something we drink on a daily basis.

In addition to just mixing and drinking as is, we have tried several of the suggested serving tips and recipes on the box. My family's favorite way to serve this is with pineapple juice cinnamon sticks, orange slices, and a few whole cloves. I make it in a pot and let it sit for about 20 minutes before we enjoy it. It's an easy way to make a naturally tasting mulled cider drink. This one is a keeper for us!
