You all know how much I love to celebrate things, and one of the easiest ways to celebrate is with a toast! Sparkling Cider (Martinelli’s) is a staple during the holiday season, but it is pretty much a feature at any big party or gathering in the Bailey house. The problem is, at $3 ish dollars a pop, when you have a big crowd that can really add up! So, of course, we needed a homemade solution! If any of you are in the same boat, you will love this easy and delicious copycat!
My kids love it so much that they totally request it on birthdays and really anytime we have company coming over, and it’s easy to oblige them when this recipe is literally easy enough for my six year old to make it! It takes all of five minutes, and honestly I love it even more than the store bought sparkling ciders we buy!
Plus, it is a great way to “fancy” things up for special occasions and holidays! Minimal effort, maximum results! Definitely my type of recipe!
Homemade Sparkling Cider (Martinelli's)
- 1 can frozen apple juice concentrate mostly thawed
- 1 can frozen white grape juice concentrate mostly thawed
- 2 liters 7up or Fresca
- 6 cups ice
- In a large punch bowl add all ingredients and stir to combine. Serve immediately! *We refrigerate our leftovers and drink them the next day and it is still really yummy, but it doesn’t have the fizzy effect we all love with Martinelli’s unless you make and drink it within a few hours!
If you are interested in a few of our other popular non-alcoholic drinks the two others in the recipe card video are also amazing! You can find the dirty Dr. Pepper recipe here, or the easy Raspberry Lemonade here!
I hope you will get as much use out of this copycat as we do! Here’s to saving money while still celebrating life.. cheers!
