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.
