Spiced Bourbon Hot Cider

IMG_3605This simple, inexpensive and deliciously dangerous seasonal refreshment is a perfect autumn, or holiday party libation that will certainly please the masses…

Ingredients: 1 bottle bourbon, 2 gallons apple cider, 4 sweet apples, 10 cinnamon sticks, 10 peppercorns, 1 tsp. of ground cloves, 1 tsp. ginger and 1 tsp. nutmeg.

Directions: One week prior to your party you must steep the bourbon. About 5 cinnamon sticks, the peppercorns and the spices go gently into the bourbon, let sit for 1 week. *Note the changing aroma on the nose of the bottle throughout the week. When ready, pour the apple cider into a large pot on the stove. Strain bourbon into the apple cider. Cut apples into slices and along with the 5 remaining cinnamon sticks, add to mixture. Warm the deliciously smelling amber colored elixir to the desired temperature. Serve with a ladle and a smile.

Some folks carelessly make spiked cider with vodka or rum – we believe this is a grievous mistake. The bourbon adds a distinct flavor and takes on the spices with a unique depth. If you make this Spiced Bourbon Hot Cider for your next party, we guarantee an instant hit and a constant badgering until the recipe is divulged…

*Any bourbon or cider will do, but we use Elijah Craig 12 year old bourbon and freshly pressed apple cider from Smith’s Orchard. Enjoy!
