When it starts to get cold everyone seems to turn to delicious hot drinks such
as apple cider. There are so many ways to kick it up a notch and make your apple
cider “party ready”. One great way is a “spiked” version of the traditional recipe
by Rachael Ray.
Makes: 8 Servings
Prep: 5 Minutes
Cook: 10 Minutes
2 Quarts Apple Cider
1 Cup Apple Brandy
2 Teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
1 Teaspoon Ground Cardamom
1 Teaspoon Curry Powder
In a large pot, combine all the ingredients over high heat and bring
to a simmer. Lower the heat and keep warm. To serve, strain through a
fine mesh sieve into a heatproof pitcher and pour into mugs.
This would be a great cocktail at any cold weather event!
