Apple Cider Floats

To start off the “birthday” week right (The Fresh Fridge 1 year mark, that is), I wanted to share one of my absolute favorite frozen treats – Apple Cider Floats.

While it is still the middle of summer and 100 degrees in many places, this float is a nice reminder that Fall will eventually come – along with beautiful leaves, pumpkin patches, and trips to the cider mill. :)

This float actually surprised me with how well the flavors balanced out. My husband can attest that it is definitely his favorite. It has a touch of sour green apple balanced by the creamy, sweet vanilla ice cream and a dash of cinnamon. The cider and ginger ale tastes great served with an apple slice – these are super fun treats to share.

I plan on using these for a Back 2 School treat once school is back in full swing and eventually for a Fall Fest Dessert (especially when our local cider mill is back!). With a tiny apple slice, these were actually pretty fun to make miniaturized as a quick snack (or sweet tooth craving!).
