Everyone loves a warm drink during the chilly days of fall, and this one is a delicious twist on traditional apple cider. Ingredients:
- 2 quarts apple cider
- 1 cup apple brandy or Apple Jack
- a few cinnamon sticks
- a few cloves
Combine all ingredients in a large pot on the stove. Bring to a simmer and then lower the heat and keep warm. This was a wonderful compliment to the brunch served at the Festive Fall Bridal Shower for Holly’s sister-in-law. It is great in the slow-cooker, on the stove, or in a thermos for tailgating. Just be sure the kiddos don’t sneak a drink!
This combination may sound a little odd, but it was a hit when we served it at the Festive Fall Bridal Shower for Holly’s future sister-in-law. Try it and let us know what you think.
- 7 apples, peeled and sliced (tart are best)
