Maple syrup adds sweetness to these cool, spiced apple spritzers.
Bring spices, ginger, syrup, and 1/2 cup water to a boil in a small saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 2 minutes. Let stand at room temperature 1 hour. Strain, and discard solids.
Stir together spiced syrup and apple cider in a pitcher, and refrigerate until cold. Pour 1/2 cup spiced cider into each of eight glasses, and top with seltzer. Garnish each glass with ginger.
