Celebrate New Years With This Festive Sparking Cider
Besides the balldrop in Times Square, there nothing quite so strongly associated with New Years as champagne. It’s no fun to get left out of the celebrations, so we decided to create a botanical “mocktail” that draws on the seasonal flavors of clove and cinnamon, with an earthy herbal touch of rosemary– all offset by a fresh, tart dash of lemon. The recipe is simple and easy to offset with herbs from your indoor garden, ones that are sure to grow all year round. Encourage Lil’ Sprouts to get involved in the process and figure out what seems appropriately festive for them. Check out the recipe (approved by kids and adults) below!
