White Cranberry Peach Apple Cider

White Cranberry Peach Apple Cider

What a title, huh?

I didn’t want to leave any ingredient out of the name, thus the 100 word recipe title.

I’m dipping my toes in the world of food blogging this month and have already learned so much.

Like for every single picture you see here, there are approximately 10 others that got thrown out.  But I’m not saying the pictures you do see are very good, either.  More of a “best of the worst” collection!  Lighting is tough, man!  I am actually proud of myself for taking these pictures in natural light.  Aaand that’s the only thing I’m proud to say about these pictures.

Oh yeah, and I may have gotten a bit overconfident with the lighting situation and did about 34 pictures of me pouring the drink because for 1 minute I thought I was a #professional.  Who needs a tripod and remote when I can just take blurry shots while holding the camera in one hand and the pitcher in the other?!

Anyway, back to the recipe.

I saw some sparkling peach apple cider the other day and absolutely had to try it.  I knew it would be perfect in a fall recipe so I got to work.  Of course I could have just left well enough alone, but how boring would the recipe be if I had just told you to chill a bottle of peach apple cider?!  I had to find something to mix it with and white cranberry peach juice cocktail sounded like a winner to me.  Plus cranberries=fall, so I was all over it.  Both of these items should be located in the juice aisle of any grocery store.  You just go down that one aisle and you’re done!  So easy!

I added the fruit because I just love the look of fruit in the pitcher.  Sure, it’s totally impractical and kind of weird to eat juiced fruit, but it’s just so pretty!  I was also originally going to make this recipe a sangria, but I loved it so much on its own that I want to drink it all the time and sometimes showing up somewhere drunk is kind of inappropriate so I noped out on the wine but I’ll just add it to an individual glass when wine is appropriate.  It still tastes fantastic either way.
