Sometimes the tiniest of adjustments can pack a big punch. This shamefully easy hot chai apple cider is a prime example of such tasty easy-way-outing.
I’m a big fan of “halfway homemade” creations, but this recipe is SO user-friendly that even that label sounds way more labor intensive than it really is. You’ll see what I mean after the jump.
It’s as simple as a chai tea bag steeped in 2 parts hot apple cider and 1 part hot water. You can adjust the cider to water ratio to your liking, but that’s what I did. Cider can be a little too potent for me sometimes.
Feeling fancy? Try adding a cinnamon stick or whipped cream or caramel sauce. The possibilities are endless.
And there you have it. Gourmet without any of the fuss.
