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.

SPIKED CIDER.

SPIKED CIDER.

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!

HOLIDAY: No Carve Pumpkins

So last year David and I went to this amazing little pumpkin patch, drank cider, went through a corn maze, and of course picked pumpkins. Well the Halloween dream ended there because once we got home we didn’t do anything with our pumpkins! They sat around looking cute, but under decorated. If you’re like us and maybe are not in the mood to carve pumpkins this year, here are some great no carve ways to decorate your pumpkins!
