One of my favorite things about Fall is gathering around the firepit with friends, sipping spiced spiked cider, on a chilly October night.
Bonus: Your entire house will smell divine while simmering this delicious brew.
Boozy Hot Honey-Apple Cider
4 cups apple cider
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup honey
2 cinnamon sticks
6 whole cloves
4 whole allspice
750 ml bottle of dry white wine
Place the apple cider, lemon juice, honey, wine, and spices in a 4 quart dutch oven and bring to a simmer (do not boil).
Reduce heat and low simmer, uncovered, for 20 minutes. Remove the spices, or leave them in the pot.
Ladle into mugs and add a splash of brandy.
Make it extra awesome: burn a Cider House Soy Candle and infuse your whole house with the delicious aroma of boozy spiced cider.
