True apple wine aficionados enjoy their apple wine pure; only in special circumstances will they take it mixed with sparkling mineral water. This "watered down" version, known as the "sauergespritzer", is particularly popular amongst first-timers. A sweet version, called the "süßgespritzer", also exists. This variation of the locals' beverage of choice is however frowned upon by the majority of apple wine enthusiasts. The popular wintertime version of Frankfurt apple wine is served piping hot with cinnamon sticks and cloves.
