The holidays are rapidly approaching, and if there’s one thing at each and every holiday dinner for our family, it’s Martinelli’s Sparkling Apple Cider. We typically splurge and buy several bottles, because it’s the holidays, right?

Well, I’ve made a knock-off version that tastes just as great and serves a crowd for about the same price as one bottle. No joke! Three ingredients and $3-$4 makes 107.6 oz of Sparkling Apple Cider, compared to a 25.4 oz bottle of Martinelli’s which is usually $2-$3 per bottle when I buy it from the store. You literally get 4x the amount of liquid gold for roughly the same price.

Not only is it inexpensive (and easy) to make, it tastes great! My kids seriously thought they were getting the real Martinelli’s when we made this Sparkling Apple Cider. I’ll be honest, sometimes we are stingy with our Martinelli’s when we buy the expensive bottles, haha. So the kids are thrilled that they can have more than one glass of this homemade version.
