Welcome back to Recipe.me!
I love Apfelschorle for numerous reasons, and I’d love to give them all to you but I’m in a bit of a rush this week! This week, my brother is getting married! Yay!! I’m excited! I’m baking his cake and doing some of the catering… So… as you can imagine, time and I aren’t working together :/ But let me briefly count the ways I love Apfelschorle! (And I will count. Check out this super fancy list 🙂 )
- Apfelschorle is both apple juice and soda!
- It’s a kid-friendly drink, meaning that there is no alcohol. (That’s right, completely non-alcoholic.)
- If you sit down on a hot day, this is an awesome drink. This carbonated drink is amazingly refreshing
- It isn’t as sweet as pure apple juice and not as carbonated as pure sparkling water
- It’s super easy to prepare
- Apfelschorle extremely cheap to make
- You can easily customize the flavor by varying the quantities of apple juice and carbonated water
That’s a nice small list. I know you’ll love this drink as much as I!!!
Apfelschorle (German Carbonated Apple Juice)
If you haven’t gathered it by now, Apfelschorle will only take you a few moments to prepare. The steps to preparing it are 1 step shorter than the list of ingredients. Are you ready for this?!?!?! First, grab these:
- 600 milliliters (2 1/2 cups) of apple juice
- 400 milliliters (1 2/3 cups) of carbonated water
Whew! two-thirds of the way done! Now to finish, mix the apple juice and the carbonated water together!
Enjoy a nice cup of Apfelschorle at a restaurant, on a picnic, with a French flammekueche, or whenever!
Just as a heads up, I used a ratio of 3 parts apple juice and 2 parts carbonated water. But in general, you’ll find Apfelschorle with 50-60% apple juice. (Personally, I prefer the slightly sweeter flavor.) As I said before, you can very easily customize this drink. Just add a little of one ingredient and less of another and BAM a whole new drink.
As a note, I have tried this with club soda. If possible avoid it, club soda often has extra minerals and stuff added to it. I recommend a good carbonated water. (I love San Pellegrino’s carbonated water. It finds its way into my shopping cart way more often than I should!)
I know you’ll enjoy this recipe as much as I do. I love to make myself a cup of this wonderful carbonated juice during fancy meals. And, one of the best parts is, it’s non-alcoholic! So you can even give it to your kids (or younger siblings or nieces and nephews) at a birthday party or a picnic!
Well, I’m off. Time to make my brother’s wedding cake!
