Hot Spiked Apple Cider

Hot Spiked Apple Cider

From November through the end of winter, one of our favorite drinks to make is a hot spiked apple cider.  Peter made this drink a few years back and we have made it every year since.  It truly is a crowd pleaser and there is nothing better than a cup or two of hot cider on a cold day.  The smell of this cider simmering in your crock pot all day fills your home with the scents of the season too!

Ingredients

  • 1 gallon of good quality apple cider
  • 2 oranges sliced (peel on)
  • 1 lemon sliced (peel on)
  • 4 cinnamon sticks
  • 4 tsp of whole cinnamon cloves
  • 4 star anise (I wasn’t able to find whole star anise so I used ground star anise)
  • 1 1/2 cups bourbon or whisky (start with 1 cup, taste, and then add up to a half of cup more should you desire)
  • orange slices/cinnamon sticks for garnish
