Found my great hot cider recipe ! Is it still cold where you are?

  1. This is the BEST hot apple cider ! The kind you are given for all evening sipping at Colorado ski lodges, at the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs or at the Greenbriar in West Virginia. I got this recipe in Breckenridge, at a great old bar with a humongous fireplace and leather couches everywhere, and hot tubs filled with apres ski folks sipping pints of "spiked cider".

    You might want to save for next winter:

    1 oz. of your favorite bourbon or whiskey
    1 oz. of Apple Liqueur
    6 oz of hot apple cider.....don't let it boil...the flavor will boil out
    I use natural cider in a gallon jug from the "apple place"
    or from the health food store , and try to avoid pasteur-
    ized from the grocery store...too sweet and no apple
    flavor. tastes like corn syrup and water.
    Last, garnish with a long cinnamon stick,.......... not a peppermint
    stick, but a cinnamon stick.

    Really delightful. The apple liqueur is the secret ingredient, and
    you can garnish it with a few thin apple slices and very
    thin lemon slices.

    Just read the "still snowing " thread....why not let some hot apple liqueur comfort your senses and ease those cold, tired, tense muscles into the weekend?

    Gin still works for me! Premade and everything. It is a convenience food.
