Hot mulled cider is a popular beverage in the cooler months, with the cider heated to a temperature just below boiling and then infused with various spices and bourbon. Of course, bourbon and apples are a great fit in many drinks, and this spiked cider is certainly no exception.


  • 4 cups apple cider
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 4 cloves
  • 1 cup bourbon


In a saucepan, add the apple cider, cinnamon sticks and cloves, then heat until warmed. Remove from heat and pour in the bourbon. Serve.
