spiked cider


making spiked cider is on my fall bucket list. and of course it would be the first the one i would want to cross off! this drink is perfect on a chilly fall night in your diy personalized mug.

spiked hot apple cider


  • 1 gallon apple cider
  • 10 whole cloves
  • 3 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 tbs lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 liter whiskey


bring the cider to boil in a pot.
add the sugar and dissolve completely. bring the cider down to a simmer and add the rest of the ingredients.
cover the pot and simmer for at least 1 hour and 30 minutes. simmer longer for a stronger flavor.
add the whiskey and let it simmer for another 10  minutes. keep on the stove on the lowest temperature to keep warm.
serve in a mug with a cinnamon stick and enjoy!
