I discovered a shot of Hot Damn schnapps in some mulled cider works wonders.
When making mulled cider use a hand held sieve to eliminate consuming the spices.
Single serving Spiked Mulled Cider:
Pour apple cider into a pot and simmer over low heat. Add clove, cinnamon stick and nutmeg. Float orange slices. Pour a shot of Hot Damn Schnapps into a mug before filling with the warm cider.
I found prepared mulling spices at my local market. After adding some to a pan, I add a few cups of cider and simmer over low heat. The longer you simmer the richer the flavor. Add a shot of Hot Damn or favorite fall schnapps to the mug before filling with the warm cider.
Easy Spiked Crockpot Cider for a crowd:
1/2 gallon apple cider
4 whole cinnamon sticks
8 whole Allspice Berries or Cloves
Orange peel or slices from 1 orange
(add lemon peel from one lemon during cold season)
3/4 cup spiced rum
1/2 cup Hot Damn
1/2 cup Buttershots
Cook on high for one hour then switch to warm and serve.
For the best benifits
this hot beverage should be read while reading a steamy romance book
next to a cozy fire.
