Hot Spiked Cider

Hot Spiked Cider

I’d say there are two scents that greet you with “happy holidays!” when you walk inside someone’s winter home: Fresh pine and simmering apple cider. Apple cider can take many forms. It’s tasty plain, but you can spice it up a bit, and spike it up as well, for a little extra holiday cheer.

For a non-alcoholic version, omit the applejack and schnapps and add 2 tablespoons cinnamon-flavored syrup, such as Torani brand.

INGREDIENTS
4 cups apple cider
1 cinnamon stick
5 whole cloves
1/2 cup apple brandy
2 tablespoons cinnamon schnapps
Cinnamon sticks for garnish

Bring apple cider, cinnamon stick and cloves to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Add applejack and schnapps. Garnish with a cinnamon stick and serve hot.

This is my family's go to winter beverage. We've found a chai tea bag that works really well for us. Our recipe is cider, 2 of our favorite tea bags and maybe a splash of any wine. Yum on a chilly winter evening.

Apple brandy = applejack by the looks of the recipe. Never seen either of those things, but will go look. Cheers.
