Hot Spiked Cider
This adults-only cider will warm up even the coldest days — and make your home smell great!
If you can find it, try using a locally-produced apple cider. Local ingredients make it to the market faster and therefore are fresher. To make things extra festive, serve this cider in mugs rimmed with sugar, or topped with orange twists, whipped cream or nutmeg.
2 quarts apple cider
2 cinnamon sticks
4 shots apple brandy
Heat cider with cloves and cinnamon.
Pour a shot of apple brandy into a mug and fill with cider.
Servings: Approximately eight drinks, depending on mug size.
