Ice cider is a beverage, native to Québec, made from sweet ripe apples which have been allowed to freeze on the tree. The result is a rich drink with a slight acidity which makes it refreshing, rather than cloying, as many sweet ciders tend to be. Ice cider is also sometimes called apple ice wine, a reference to the grape-based beverage which inspired it.

- 2 Tbsp (30 mL) canola oil
