Caramel Apple Mocktail

Three glasses of caramel apple mocktail ready to serve with a half full pitcher in the background.

Perfect through autumn and apple season this rich caramel apple mocktail is reminiscent of an apple pie. It is a fun and pretty mocktail to serve to guests, young and old alike. Kids will love help preparing and stirring the ingredients together and decorating the glass rims.

The rimming of the cup is a unique blend of cinnamon biscuits and sweet rub. This gives some more texture to the drink which is complemented by the freshness of the apple chunks. It’s a drink that provides a little snack.

If looking for variations of this recipe, try using a homemade caramel sauce. Or, mix up the dessert seasonings by using a pumpkin spice mix or even a Chinese five-spice powder. Ginger snaps would also be a good substitution for the biscuits adding a different dimension.

Perfect through autumn and apple season this rich Caramel Apple Mocktail is reminiscent of apple pie.
Preparation 10 minutes
Ready in 10 minutes
Servings 6 Servings


  • 1 sprig rosemary
  • 6 cups apple cider
  • 1/2 cup caramel sauce
  • 2 plain biscuits or Graham crackers
  • 1 tablespoon dessert rub or cinnamon sugar
  • 1 apple
  • 3 cups sparkling water


  • 1 pitcher
  • 6 serving glasses or plastic cups


  • Add the rosemary to the pitcher and muddle (lightly mash to break the leaves so the flavor is imparted into the liquids).
  • Add to the pitcher the apple cider and caramel syrup. Stir to mix the caramel evenly into the apple cider.
  • Place the biscuits into a small plastic bag and smash them until they are fine crumbs. Add the dessert rub and mix well to combine.
  • Core and thinly slice the apple to create apple pieces that can be added to the mocktail.
  • Set up two shallow plates, one with water and the second with the biscuit crumbs. Take each glass and dip the rim in the water, then dip in the seasoned biscuit crumbs to create a decorative rim.
  • Add two slices of the apple to the glass. Remove the rosemary from the pitcher then stir in case any of the caramel has settled. Pour the caramel apple cider into each glass just over half full, then add the sparkling water to fill to just below the biscuit rim. Serve immediately while still cold.
