Description

Maple Whiskey Spiced Cider, infused with warm autumn spices, is a cozy fall libation.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 6 cups organic, unsweetened 100% apple juice
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 15 whole cloves
  • 3 long strips orange peel
  • juice of half an orange
  • 2 inch chunk of fresh ginger, peeled
  • 1/2 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 cup maple whiskey (I used Jim Bean)

Instructions

  1. Combine the organic, unsweetened 100% apple juice with the cinnamon sticks, cloves, peeled ginger, freshly grated nutmeg and honey in a pot. Using a peeler, peel a few nice, long strips of the orange and add it along with the juice from half the orange.
  2. Bring the juice to a simmer; simmer for a minute and remove from heat. Let the juice sit and infuse for 25 minutes.*
  3. Strain the apple juice through a fine mesh strainer, reserving the cinnamon sticks for garnish. Add the whiskey and heat until warm.
  4. Pour into mugs, placing a cinnamon stick into each mug. Garnish with a slice of apple. Enjoy!

Notes

*You want to take it off the heat because you don’t want to reduce it, which will make it syrupy and too sweet, you just want to infuse the spices.
