Bourbon Apple Cider



Tis’ the season! Fall certainly would not be complete without apple cider. Why not add a little something to it?

Servings: 4-6

Time: 15 minutes

  • 8 cups apple cider
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 4 whole cloves
  • 1/2 navel orange, sliced
  • 4-6 shots of bourbon (I used Maker’s Mark but you can really use any bourbon)

1. Add apple cider to a medium saucepan and throw in cinnamon sticks, nutmeg and orange slices. Bring to a boil, allowing the flavors to blend then turn heat down to low for 5-10 minutes.

2. Remove from heat, and add whiskey so not to burn off all the alcohol. I added 6 shots but if you aren’t planning on getting totally trashed, you might want to add only 4 shots. Stir in and then serve cider using a ladle. Great for enjoying by the campfire!
