This time of year we all want nothing more than to be curled up next to a fire with a hot beverage. While we may not all be lucky enough to have a fireplace, you can still cozy up with a mug of this warm & spicy spiked cider. This recipe is very simple, with only a few ingredients, and can easily be made into a larger batch for guests. Happy Thanksgiving, gals!
Spiked Cider with a Cinnamon Sugar Rim
Makes 2 cocktails
- 2 cups apple cider
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 4 oz bourbon or whiskey
- 1 Tbsp. cinnamon sugar
- Warm the cider on the stovetop with the cinnamon sticks until it’s very warm and reduced slightly. This should take about 15 minutes over low heat.
- Pour the cinnamon sugar on a plate. Just barely dip the rim of your glasses in the cider, then dip it in the sugar.
- Add the 2 oz bourbon or whiskey to each glass and top with the cider.
- Garnish each glass with a cinnamon stick and enjoy!

P.S. This cider will give you a case of “warm soup belly” (HIMYM fans?). You’ve been warned. :)
