Hot Caramel Apple Spiked Cider

A boozy take on hot apple cider that’s perfect for cool evenings.

Ingredients

2
cups high-quality apple cider
1/4
cup thick caramel sauce
1/4
cup heavy cream (optional)
1/8
teaspoon cinnamon
2
oz. spiced rum (more or less, to taste)

For Garnish (Optional):

1/4
cup thick caramel sauce or frosting, for rims
1/4
cup cinnamon candies, finely crushed, for rims
Whipped cream
1/8
teaspoon cinnamon

Directions

  • 1 Do ahead: Place cinnamon candies into a plastic zip-top bag. With bag zipped closed, crush candies well with a rolling pin or hammer. (Larger pieces of candies won’t adhere well to the rims.) Place finely crushed candies on a small plate. On another small plate, place 1/4 cup of thick caramel sauce or frosting.
  • 2 Dip the rim of each mug first into the caramel, then into the crushed candies. Immediately place mugs into freezer to set the caramel rim. Repeat with second mug. After 5 minutes, remove mugs from freezer and place in refrigerator until 10 minutes prior to serving. (Allow glasses to warm to room temperature before serving.)
  • 3 Over medium heat, combine apple cider, caramel sauce, heavy cream and cinnamon. Whisk while reducing heat to a drinkable temperature (do not boil). Remove from heat and whisk rum into the mixture, making sure the cinnamon is thoroughly combined and not clumpy.
  • 4 Pour cocktails into rimmed room-temperature mugs. Top with whipped cream and a dusting of cinnamon. Serve immediately.

Welcome fall with this warm, smooth, adults-only apple sipper.

One of the best parts of fall is that it’s finally apple season.

And apple season means it’s also apple cider season.

And apple cider season means…

Wait. This is starting to sound like a Dr. Seuss book. But make no mistake—the next line is just for us adults:

Apple cider season means it’s also… spiked apple cider season! YES!

All you need for this cocktail: apple cider, cream, caramel sauce, cinnamon and some stuff with a bit of personality (rum).

Tips  

Thick frosting can be used instead of the caramel on the rims, and red sugar sprinkles or jimmies can be substituted for the crushed cinnamon candies.

The amounts of cream, caramel and spiced rum can be adjusted to taste.
