Spiked Caramel Apple Cider Recipe
Nothing says fall to me like a hot caramel apple cider. The caramel makes the apple cider buttery and the perfect fall drink. That and I just love everything with caramel in it.
I thought to myself what could make it better? Enter Spicebox whisky. A shot of this whiskey perfectly compliments the caramel apple cider. I decided to top it with some whipped cream, a dusting of cinnamon and a cinnamon stick.
Spiked Caramel Apple Cider
1 ounce caramel or 4 Kraft caramels
1 (8 ounces) cup real refrigerated apple cider
dash of cinnamon
1 ounce Spicebox whisky
Heat cider in either a saucepan or the microwave. Add caramel and stir to melt/combine. Add a dash of cinnamon, stir. Pour Spicebox into a glass and add caramel apple cider. Top with whipped cream, sprinkle of cinnamon and a cinnamon stick.
Susie Savors: This is a whiskey drink that coated my tongue in fall flavors. The Spicebox whisky is an excellent flavor pairing with apple cider. The spices enhance each other and add extra layers of flavor. Served warm it really can take away the chill of a fall day and replace it with a fierce dose of spices. Also, the astringent sting of alcohol was gone and replaced by a warm coating of apples.
