HAPPY HOUR: Spiked Cider

Happy Friday everyone! Nothing says fall in the Stephenson household more than pumpkin picking, apple cider, and some good pumpkin ice cream! This is the delicious recipe I will be serving up this weekend for our amazing fall weekend.

INGREDIENTS

1 Quart of apple cider

1 Package of mulling spices

Spiced Rum (We always prefer Bacardi)

 

DIRECTIONS

Bring the quart of apple cider and package of mulling spices to a boil.

Once boiling, turn the heat down to low and allow the mixture to simmer for 30 minutes.

Strain out all mulling spices, serve cider over 1 ounce of spiced rum.

 

The whole idea for spiked cider came when I saw this ADORABLE package of mulling spices at Kroger last week. You can find them at your local Kroger or Amazon!
