November Cider (Non-Alcoholic)

The November Cider is a mocktail that comes pretty close to many of the punches involving black tea and cider. It's not a bad idea to put these flavors together, but I noticed a big flaw in the recipe. Too much lemon juice does not do cider any favors. If you make this, sweeten it with a black tea syrup, or some kind of spiced syrup. It is not enough to just assume orange juice can cover for all that tartness.

Even once you do that, you have a very tropical punch drink on your hands and not one that lends itself to fall sipping in November.
  • 3 oz. apple cider
  • 3 oz. orange juice
  • 3 oz. cold black tea
  • 1 1/2 oz. lemon juice (Use less or add sugar syrup)
  • lemon slice
 Combine all ingredients in a Collins glass full of ice and stir. Garnish with the lemon slice.
