When the cold weather hits (which in Arizona is when it hits 78) I crave warm apple cider. I just love it! We make it every year and occasionally spike it. And by occasionally I mean all the time. After trying a few variations, my husband chose this version as his favorite. Also, this is ridiculously easy to make.
Spiced Apple Cider (we like Trader Joe’s) or you can make your own– just be sure to use REAL apple cider not from concentrate
Cinnamon Roll Cinnabon Pinnacle Vodka*
*Also, I want to clarify this is not sponsored, the Cinnabon Pinnacle Vodka was our favorite to spike the cider with and it happens to be a very specific brand. We tried cinnamon and caramel liqueurs, but who does not love a warm cinnamon bun? It was a match made in cold weather heaven.
Warm up your spiced apple cider on the stovetop and keep on simmer. Pour yourself a cup and add half a shot to a shot of cinnamon roll vodka. Garnish with a cinnamon stick and apple slice. Be careful of poking your eye out with the cinnamon stick if you have too many of these.
