Warm up with a glass of Honey Whiskey Apple Cider this fall. Fresh apple cider spiked with honey whiskey, cinnamon and a hint of lemon juice.
Honey Whiskey Apple Cider
When we entertain at the casa there are typically cocktails to go along with all the amazing food. The holidays this year were no different.
We had family and friends in and out for two weeks, so of course the drinks were flowing. We are an easy couple to shop for… a good bottle of wine or our favorite whiskey and we are happy people!
My mother-in-law knows this so when she showed up for Christmas she had several bottles in tow. One of those was a bottle of honey whiskey for Mr. B. He loves the sweet, smooth taste.
One afternoon when temperatures hit close to freezing, I decided I wanted to dip into the bottle but I wasn’t in the mood to sip straight whiskey so we whipped up a batch of Honey Whiskey Apple Cider instead!
The kid ran down to the corner store for a bottle of fresh apple cider, not apple juice!
A apple slices, little fresh squeezed lemon juice, a bit of honey, some cinnamon sticks and we were in business.
Everything went into the crockpot for a few hours and it was heavenly. The smell alone was amazing, that warm spicy scent of winter and it tasted like apple pie!
