Cocktail Corner: Spiked Apple Cider

“A gulp of hot whiskey at bedtime — it’s not scientific, but it helps.” – Alexander Fleming (inventor of penicillin)

The holidays are upon us, which means homes filled with friends and family members alike enjoying meals that we’ve slaved hours over to prepare. We here at CLT Remedy believe that no holiday table is complete without a cocktail! The following spiked hot apple cider is perfect for those who are looking for a no fuss drink that is sure to please the crowd.

Spiked Apple Cider Cocktail

1 qt apple cider

2 tbsp mulling spices


Sliced apple and cinnamon sticks (optional)

Simmer apple cider and mulling spices for a minimum of 20 minutes. Pour into individual mugs, top with a shot of whiskey, and garnish with sliced apples and a cinnamon stick.

Pro-tip: For those looking for a richer tasting cocktail, add a tbsp of unsalted butter to the cider base.
