Spiked Cider


Spiked Cider

I was looking for something warm and festive to bring along Trick or Treating for the adults in our neighborhood. This hit the spot! easy and just the right mix of sweet and tart. I found this great recipe on Allrecipes.


7 cups apple cider
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 cup dark rum
1/2 cup butterscotch schnapps
4 cinnamon sticks
1 teaspoon whole allspice
1 teaspoon whole cloves
1 tablespoon lemon zest

Combine the cider and brown sugar in a saucepan. Wrap the cinnamon sticks, allspice, cloves and lemon zest in cheesecloth and add to the cider mixture; bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes. Remove the spice bundle and stir in the rum and butterscotch schnapps. Serve warm in mugs. Enjoy!
