I love the smells of apples, cinnamon, allspice and clove wafting through the kitchen in the winter.  Sitting by a warm fire, sipping spiced apple cider is a delightful way to spend an evening.  Even better is to add a splash of Applejack or other brandy to the cider…yum!

Kendahl from Our Nourishing Roots has a wonderfully festive recipe for spiced apple
cider.  She kindly is letting us post her recipe for apple cider from her comprehensive and delightful e-book, Natural Cocktails.

 I am going to admit that I really enjoyed the spiked version of this cider.  Had a couple of mugfuls just to be sure it was worthy of our review.  Hahahaha!  😉

  1. sounds really yummy! my favorite holiday beverage is…. not just one. Too many to choose from! I love hot apple cider, egg nog, champagne, and I make a delicious home made pumpkin spice latte.

  2. I just concocted a drink last night. 3 parts godiva white chocolate caramel liquor, 1 part grey goose vodka and a splash of peppermint schnapps. Served in a martini glass with a mini candy cane hung on the rim. It was a hit with my summer tennis team for pre-drinking AND as a substitute for dessert.

    1. Um…that sounds delicious!! And, if you win this book, you will find ways to make your own liqueurs that aren’t filled with fake ingredients!!!!
