FAQS

What if I don’t have pumpkin pie spice for the rim? No problem. If you do not have pumpkin pie spice, you could use cinnamon instead! This will still create a fun spiced sugar rim to compliment the apple cider and ginger beer mocktail.


Can I use apple juice instead of apple cider? If you’re in a bind, you could substitute apple juice for the apple cider in this recipe. If possible, use an unsweetened apple juice.


What if I want to make my mocktail sweeter? If you need a little extra sweetness in your mocktail, you could add a splash of simple syrup or maple syrup (start with ½ tsp and add more to taste).
