In the month of October, we celebrate co-ops. Why? Because they are awesome! We feature recipes from co-ops around the country in our special Co-op Recipe Guide.


  • 1 Tbsp Frontier Co-op Organic, Cane Sugar
  • 1 tsp Frontier Co-op Organic Apple Pie Spice
  • 1 small red sweet apple
  • 4 Frontier Co-op Organic, Fair Trade Ceylon Cinnamon Sticks
  • 1 bottle champagne
  • 2 cups pasteurized apple cider, chilled


  1. On a small, rimmed plate, gently whisk together cane sugar and apple pie spice. Spread out mixture so the edge is bigger in diameter than the rim of your glass. Set aside.
  2. Dip the rim of each glass in a shallow bowl of water or apple cider, or rub an apple slice along the rim. Dip glass rim in sugar-spice mixture until rim is fully coated. Repeat with all four glasses.
  3. Just before serving, cut four thin apple slices and place one at the bottom of each glass along with a cinnamon stick. Tuck cinnamon stick under apple slice so it doesn’t float to the top.
  4. Into each glass, pour champagne until bubbles have settled and glass is half full. Add apple cider until glass is full.
