THE RECIPE

Spicy Spiked Cider

Spike your cider for a seasonal, Thanksgiving-worthy cocktail

Hot apple cider is a must-have for the cool weather but Joanne and Adam take it to the next level with this grown-up version. Seasonal spices like cinnamon, cloves, and star anise are infused into fresh cider and a splash of OJ until just heated through then cooled and poured over ice in a cinnamon sugar-lined glass with a splash (rather heavy-handed if you’re us) of spiced rum. The best things about this drink? It’s delicious warm or cold and you can make a booze-less version for the kiddos first before adding the rum. If you’re thinking about this perfect cocktail for your Thanksgiving soiree, this is it.
