Fall is loved by so many because it has such comforting undertones for the entire season. This is why fall foods and drinks are so popular. You can’t have a fall recipe that doesn’t scream, “Wrap me in a blanket and warm up the fireplace or campfire.” I definitely look forward to this season every year.

Since I love this season so much, I just had to come up with the perfect mocktail to represent my affection. The result? This Pressure Cooker Caramel Apple Pie Mocktail! What is more fall than an apples, apple pie, apple cider, and caramel? Absolutely nothing! You would be hard-pressed to find a better drink that incorporates the season in its entirety than this one. This drink is kid-friendly, but you can make for adults-only after the little ones go to bed by adding a dash of your favorite alcohol.

 

 

How Do You Make Pressure Cooker Caramel Apple Pie Mocktail?

 

This is a really fun drink to prepare as it’s not just mixing liquids together. You’ll want to spread your sugar evenly in the pressure cooker or multi-pot and wait until it caramelizes before adding your water. Once you turn the heat to low, the caramelized sugar will eventually dissolve into the water.

That’s when you’ll want to add your cider, thyme, and rosemary sprigs. Stir and let cool before preparing the rim of your glass with the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Fill the glass, add the sparkling water, and for a gorgeous presentation, add a sprig of rosemary and thyme to finish it off. A beautiful drink for a beautiful season.

Tips for Making Pressure Cooker Caramel Apple Pie Mocktail

 

  • If sparkling doesn’t catch your fancy, sparkling cider or ginger ale works great as well. 
  • Toss in an ounce of your favorite alcohol to make it an adult beverage. Some great suggestions would be sour apple pucker, sour apple Schnapps, or even Fireball.
  • Be sure that you don’t burn the sugar. It will take approximately ten minutes to melt. Keep an eye on it because you don’t want your drink having a burnt taste. 
  • If you don’t have enough apple cider leftovers to coat the rims of the glasses, you can use any liquid that you put in the recipe. Preferably one with flavor as this adds to the initial flavor of the drink.

Common Questions Asked About Multi Pot Caramel Apple Pie Mocktail

 

What is the Difference Between Cocktail and Mocktail?

 

A cocktail has alcohol in it. A mocktail (as the name would suggest) is a cocktail with the alcohol removed. In other words, a mocktail has all the appearances of a cocktail, it’s just safe for kids and weekdays. Both of these drinks are usually mixed with the same ingredients and similar flavor combinations. Truly, the only thing that differentiates between the two is the alcohol and the size. Cocktails tend to be less liquid due to the alcohol content. Mocktails tend to be a bit bigger because they’re easier to drink more of.

Is a Pressure Cooker or Multi-Cooker the Same as an Instant Pot?

 

In short, yes. The Instant Pot is a multi-cooker because it’s one appliance that covers the job of more than one appliance. So, any other appliance that mimics the Instant Pot, whether it’s an off-brand or something similar, is considered a multi-cooker or pressure cooker. If you look up multi-pot on Google, you will see it’s basically an Instant Pot under a different brand or their version of the Instant Pot. I have loved both my Instant Pot and my multi-pot. 

Whether it’s fall or the middle of summer, mocktails are a good idea. They’re very versatile and do a great job of catering to all ages. Plus, they’re super easy to turn into a cocktail just in case a night for adults is in order. I assure you, this Multi Pot Caramel Apple Pie Mocktail is a win, especially on a fall night, wrapped in a blanket in front of the fire.

Before I get more into the actual recipe, I also want to say during fall some of my favorite cider treats are air fryer apple cider cranberry cupcakes and air fryer apple cider doughnut bites. Both of these are DELICIOUS!
