Add something to your hot cider? Sounds good or blasphemous?

Here are a few things that you can add to your hot cider to make it more warming and "Adult". Please keep in mind these suggestions are only for those who are 21 years of age or older.

A good ratio for cider to alcohol is 1 cup of cider can take 1 oz of alcohol.

  • To add more cinnamon flavor, add 1oz of any of the following:
    Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey
    Cinnamon Schapps
  • To add more of a mellow rounded flavor, add 1oz of any of the following:
    Evan Williams or Jack Daniels Honey Bourbon Liquor
    Butterscotch Schapps
    Captain Morgan or Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum

Heat the cider before you add the alcohol, either in a small saucepan over medium heat on the stove or in the microwave.

Over the stove, stir occasionally and take off the burner when you start to see steam or vapor rising off the cider. Set aside for a moment, then pour into heat resistant mug. Then add your spirit.

In the microwave method. Heat the cider in a heat resistant, microwave approved mug, first for 1minute. Then in 30 second intervals until steam or vapor rising off the cider. Then add your spirit, becareful because mugs coming out of the microwave can be very hot. Hotter than the contents.
