October 31st is National Candy Apple Day, National Caramel Apple Day, and National Trick Or Treat For UNICEF Day.

October is National Caramel Month.

Make the float even more fun by drizzling the caramel syrup around the inside of the glass before adding the apple cider and ginger ale.

You can drizzle the syrup with a spoon, but a squeeze bottle is better. Try stripes (photo #2) or a zigzag pattern up and down the glass.
