Spiced cider is one of my favorite things about fall. I always look forward to making my herbal cider recipe, which I like to drink on cold nights.
1 quart Apple Juice
3 cinnamon sticks
1-3 inch piece of ginger
1/2 tablespoon clove powder
Handful of dried or fresh orange peel
Handful of dried hawthorn berries
- Simmer together for 30-45 minutes:
- Turn off the heat. Let mixture cool slightly and then strain out the herbs.
- Add a generous helping of bourbon or whiskey to the warm cider, inhale deeply and drink.
