Chloe’s Spiked Cider Recipe:
If you’ve read The Fragile Line Series, you know that Chloe made some delicious spiked cider to take to Matt’s family’s house on Christmas.
Here’s her recipe to keep you warm this winter!
SPIKED SPICED APPLE CIDER
prep time: 5 mins
cook time: 6 hours
total time: 6 hours 5 mins
This semi-homemade spiked apple cider uses store-bought apple cider infused with cinnamon, cloves, star anise, and citrus. Right before serving it’s topped off with your favorite whiskey or bourbon for the perfect comforting winter cocktail!
1 gallon apple cider
2 cinnamon sticks
4 star anise
4 tsp. whole cloves
2 oranges, sliced (plus more for garnish)
2 lemons, sliced (plus more for garnish)
1 liter of good whiskey or bourbon (Chloe uses Cherry Whiskey 😉 )
Add apple cider, cinnamon sticks, star anise, whole cloves, oranges, and lemons into the slow-cooker. Turn the heat on low and cook for 6-7 hours.
Before serving, take out all of the whole spices, oranges, and lemons. Pour whiskey or bourbon in. Stir and serve.
