Apple Cider is a non-alcoholic beverage made from apples. It is often served during the fall and winter holidays. But what happens if you have too much apple cider on hand? This article shares the best way how to freeze apple cider so it doesn’t go to waste.

  • Total Time: 3 hours 10 minutes
  • Yield: 4 Servings 1x


Units Scale
  • 24 ounces apple cider


  1. If you want to freeze warm cider, ensure it has completely cooled to room temperature before starting the process. 
  2. Prepare the containers you’re using to freeze the apple cider in. If you’re using silicone muffin liners, place them in a muffin pan or flat tray that fits into the freezer. 
  3. Pour the cider into the containers up to around ¾ way full. This will mean it has enough room to expand while it’s freezing and won’t spill out once it’s frozen and leave a mess in your freezer. 
  4. If you’re using a bottle or container, close it and ensure it’s airtight. Place a detailed label on it, and place it into the freezer.
  5. If you’re using ice cube trays or muffin liners in a muffin tin, you can place them directly into the freezer. Once frozen, transfer the frozen portions of apple cider into a freezer-friendly bag, label it, and put it back in the freezer.


  • To prevent your apple cider from discoloring, squeeze a little bit of lemon juice into it and mix it in before you freeze it.
  • If you use apple cider for different purposes, freeze it in different quantities. Freeze some in ice cube trays for salad dressing, some of it in muffin liners for sauces and other recipes, and bottles of cider for drinking.
