this bourbon apple cider is a fancy drink for a crowd on a cold night 😀 i’d say this recipe should be able to serve about 10 people easily – and it’s so easy to double it.

added bonus: your house will smell like christmas spirit

ingredients:

  • 1/2 gallon apple juice or cider
  • 1 1/2 cups bourbon

  • pinch of nutmeg
  • pinch of allspice
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar (optional – but tasty!)

let the apple juice/cider, vanilla, and spices simmer on the stove for 10-15 minutes – if you want to go longer, put a lid on it so it doesn’t evaporate too much! you can also add 1/4 cup brown sugar to it. it helps to take the edge off the bourbon!

once it tastes nice to you, turn off the heat and let it cool down for a few minutes, and then pour in the bourbon to taste. 1 1/2 cups was perfect for me!

either ladle it from the pan or strain it and pour it into another container. enjoy!
