Who loves apple cider? How about a quick hot apple cider recipe that is rich and creamy and can be served with or without alcohol? My friend Beth at HomeStories A to Z thought it would be fun to do a fun Thanksgiving cocktail blog hop with a group of bloggers and I was thrilled to be invited. My grandparents both taste tested and approved this hot apple cider although my grandfather preferred the whip cream and caramel verses the sugared rim.
Apple Cider can be served not only for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday but Christmas as well. It’s the perfect after dinner drink for adults and for those of you who want to add a little extra kick, try a dash (or more) of Captain Morgans Spiced Rum. Absolutely delicious!
This rich and creamy recipe is also perfect for kids (minus the Rum). Garnish with whip cream, caramel and a hint of cinnamon and they think this is a super special drink that took hours to prepare. Oh and don’t forget the cinnamon stick!
The recipe is very simple and quick. Feel free to pin the image below and save for later.
This took all of five minutes and is perfect for any occasion. Dress it up or keep it simple, whichever you prefer. To create the sugared rim, I used maple syrup and spread a thin layer around the rim of the glass (with my finger) and dipped the glass in brown sugar. Many also use a lemon wedge to wet the glass rim, I didn’t have a lemon so I thought syrup would work and it did!
Do you prefer the sugar rim or the whip cream?
For me personally, apple cider can sometimes taste a bit tart for my liking but the addition of whipping cream tends to lessen the tart taste and I will admit, the smooth creamy blend is delicious. So what do you think? Are you loving the idea of a hot apple cider drink? These two are!
We hope you are inspired to try our hot apple cider drink. I mean it approved by these two above and they certainly wouldn’t steer you wrong when it comes to food or drinks 😉 ha. Now it’s time for you to head over to my friends and see what they have cooked up!
