Pretty sure I will be sipping on this spiked apple cider recipe all season long.
Up until a few years ago, apple cider was never on my radar. However, when a friend brought some, heated up (and with a little rum, obvi), to the Thanksgiving Turkey Trot, I was quickly converted.
Ever since then I look forward to this seasonal drink as soon as the temps begin to drop. Now, nothing really says fall as much as a cup of hot apple cider.
To me, there is nothing cozier than sipping a cup of spiked apple cider, wearing a cozy sweater and wrapped up in a blanket. Ugh, sounds so dreamy. We could throw in a fireplace as well. I have a vision.
Spiked Apple Cider Recipe
Allison had told me about this spiked apple cider recipe she made several years ago that she loved. Since she can’t drink at the moment, I figured I’d take it off her hands and enjoy a cup…or two.
It may still be hot here, but sipping this made it feel like fall had finally hit the desert.
This is a super low maintenance cocktail.
It can easily be modified to just enjoy a glass or two on a chilly night (or morning, when you have to run a 5k). Or make it as is and have a large batch on hand to enjoy with friends or family this fall.
Oh and if you prefer your apple cider not spiked, this is just as delicious without the whiskey!
