Caramel Macchiato Cider with Cinnamon Cream

Macchiato means “marked” in Italian, and caramel makes its mark in this comforting drink. Cozy up to a cup of cinnamon-scented cider that’s streaked with a creamy caramel sauce. Cinnamon-flavored whipped cream melts like a dream when it’s spooned on top of this irresistible brew.
