So this is a fairly recent post as in I posted it last December, but we have updated it a little bit for you. This recipe is being featured over at Club31women.com today, and I thought it might be a good idea if I highlight it again here – this is such a simple drink recipe that will save you money and give you something tasty to serve and drink at your holiday gatherings! While you’re over at Club31, check out Lisa’s (and friends!) excellent posts on marriage, motherhood, and more – a wonderful, encouraging, and occasionally challenging resource!
I recently started watching Grey’s Anatomy. Everyone I’ve ever heard talk about it has always raved about it. So I thought I would give it a try. I’m only in the middle of the second episode, but I’m liking it already. I do not find Dr. McDreamy to be at all very dreamy. Patrick Dempsey is a very nice looking man, but he’s not Brad Pitt, the Hemsworth brothers, or lastly and most importantly, the most handsome man on the planet, my husband!
Why did it take me so long to start watching this show you might wonder? Well….I was watching Angel, but this time of year, it gets dark early and I just thought I needed something a bit more light and well, girly. I’ll pick Angel up later.
I realize that none of that TV talk has anything to do with sparkling apple cider, but I thought you guys might like to offer a few morsels on the show Grey’s. Have many of you watched it?
Anyhoo-I don’t know about you, but I have a thing for the Martenelli’s sparkling apple cider. I could drink a whole bottle myself. And all the fun different flavors…well, don’t get me started. My daughters and I just love them all. What if I told you that in one of the cooking classes I attended awhile back, we were shown by Lisa (our wonderful host) how to make our own for half the price. “No,” you say? “Yes,” I say! It is so easy! You’ll wow your guests and your wallet with how deliciously cheap it is to make!
Don’t believe? Make it for yourself and prepare to be wowed!

This is a great idea! I love Martinelli's but I don't like spending like 4 dollars on 3 cups of soda. Haha.
