An apple-spiced fall drink recipe with LaCroix Sparkling Water.

If I am being honest, when LaCroix sent me their apple flavor, I asked myself, "what the heck am I going to put that in?" I suppose it's a great alternative to apple juice for kids, but that last thing I wanted to drink was sparkling apple water - I'm more of a citrus kind of gal. 

Then, I started thinking about apple spiced cocktails, and *lightbulb*, LaCroix's apple flavor was just the ticket for a fall drink recipe. I made a quick spiced syrup with cinnamon, cloves, allspice, and brown sugar, and combined a splash of it with some LaCroix Pomme-Bayà, and OH MY GOD. It's good. Even though this is a mocktail, this could get me through the entire season. 

If your family gets rowdy during the holidays, this would be a great option to serve if you're hoping to push cocktails until later in the evening. If you want your family to get rowdy during the holiday season, this is still a great option...just add bourbon ;). Nothing like getting grandma to karaoke Calvin Harris.
