 I wish I liked coffee.  I can’t even count the number of coffee drink recipes out there that I am tempted by.  But I just can’t get over the coffee flavor.  Years ago a coworker was determined to get me to like coffee.  He would come in with the fanciest drink you could think of – chocolate, caramel, whipped cream and whatever else they could put in there.    But it still tasted like coffee to me.  I love the smell of it, I just can’t get past the taste.  So last week when Steph over at Steph’s Bite by Bite posted a Pumpkin Spice Latte I was again faced with the temptation.  But this time I took matters into my own hands.  In walks Apple Cider!

I used her pumpkin spice recipe, and then made a Pumpkin Spiced Hot Apple Cider.  Complete with the whipped cream and drizzle that you fancy coffee drinkers get!  This was even better than I hoped it would be.  I knew pumpkin and apple would go well together, but I just wasn’t sure how this drink would taste.  It was perfect for the cold and rainy day I made it on.  I have some pumpkin spice syrup left in my fridge right now, just wait to see what I thinking of turning that into!

  1. I love coffee, but I can understand. There are a few foods out there that I really want to like, and have tried in a bunch of different ways, but I just can’t get over their real flavor. This is a great idea to use apple cider with pumpkin. You are really getting all of the flavors of the season!
