Spiced Apple Cider

We went apple picking at Wilkens Farm in Yorktown Heights, New York about two weeks ago. We picked our fill of apples — and then some — and were checking out the store when we stopped and saw some cider.

That would go great with rum, Pete said.

And so, the idea for spiced apple cider (which I kept calling spiked apple cider in my mind — which it is, really, Pete says) was born.

Spiced Apple Cider

What You’ll Need:

  • Half gallon of apple cider
  • 1oz. Spiced rum
  • 1 tbs. honey
  • 1/8 tbs. ground
  • 1/4 tbs. ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tbs. lemon juice

What You’ll Do:

  • Bring the cider with spices to a boil.
  • Add honey when the cider is warm so it dissolves.
  • Pour into your favorite mug.
  • Add rum.
  • Get drunk.

My daughter moved to Yorktown Heights a year ago - I'll have to make sure she knows about this orchard! She's always looking for new things to do there.
