As much as my heart doesn’t want to admit it, the Midwest heat wave is over and I need to embrace the cooler weather. To do so, I simmered a batch of chai apple cider syrup to have on hand when I catch a chill. One of the best parts of the syrup concentrate is its versatility. I enjoy mixing two tablespoons into hot water and sipping on it to warm myself from the inside out, but you can also drizzle the syrup on ice cream, pancakes, or get crazy and make a hot toddy!
Whichever way you decided to enjoy the syrup, it is a seasonal treat that can help ease the pain of the cooler weather. Plus, with the holidays around the corner you can double the batch and make enough to gift a friend! Bonus: It is relatively inexpensive to make! That’s something we all can appreciate as holiday ads are circulating and we are feeling a bit spendy!
