Hot Spiced Apple Cider
This hot spiced apple cider will warm you up from the inside out! A delicious blend of spices, with alcoholic apple cider, and just a hint of sweetness
- 12 fl oz dry cider
- 1 ½ cups apple juice see recipe notes
- 1 tablespoon fresh ginger finely grated
- 2 cinnamon quills
- 8 cloves
- 3 cardamon pods lightly crushed
- 4 slices apple
- ¼ cup spiced rum optional but highly recommended
Place cider, apple juice, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, cardamon and apple slices in a saucepan or dutch oven.
Heat over low to medium heat, 10 minutes, or until cider mixture is hot
Add spiced rum if using.
Serve with fresh apple slices and cinnamon quills.
I love using Trader Joe's honeycrisp apple cider (non alcoholic version). But if you can't find that, a good quality cloudy apple juice would be great.
General Notes - this recipe makes enough for 2 large glasses or 3 smaller glasses. To make more, double the recipe amounts.
