I am going to be a fan of any hot drink that has both cinnamon sticks and fresh ginger in it. This recipe from Laurel, blogger of Catching Seeds is perfect not only for a holiday party but also on a lazy Sunday autumn afternoon. Laurel says, “Making warm cider is more about feeling than it is about following the recipe to a T.” If you’re like me and want the recipe, go to her blog to find the recipe.
Bring on the rum! I love me a good warm cocktail. After I’ve enjoyed a family walk in the crisp autumn air this drink warms my mind, body, and spirit. Yes, warm alcohol does that to me. One thing about this recipe that I really like is the apple skewers. Every clever Ms. Danielle, blogger of A Crafty Spoonful.
Let’s be honest anything that is done in a slow cooker is a win. Am I right? I included this in the round up because when I’m hosting the best thing for me is when I can prep ahead of time and throw everything into a crockpot and forget about it as I’m preparing everything else. I’m sure Ashley, blogger of The Recipe Rebel does this when she entertains too. This cider will be a great addition to any festivity you have going on this holiday season.
Nicole blogger of Or Whatever You Do tested this cocktail for a week. I’d be “testing” it for a month if you get my drift there. I’m not sure if Nicole got me at the salted caramel of the Crown Royal. You all know that’s my go-to alcohol. I swear whiskey and whipped cream is my new jam.
Back in July when I did a roundup of 10 Summer Sangria’s, I didn’t know that sangria wasn’t just a summer drink. Did you? Well, the lovely, Elaine, blogger of Flavor and Savour did. This sangria with cranberry and cinnamon is a perfect drink for any holiday event you have going on.
Eden, blogger of Sugar and Charm put her apple picking adventure to good use and that good use was to our benefit. Her adventure inspired this twist on a Moscow mule. Using a ginger-flavored vodka, she created a delightful mule with a bit of a spicy kick.
Donna, blogger of Whole Food Bellies packs her cider full of beautiful, fresh, Fall fruit from the farmer’s marketing during this time of year. Her recipe includes things such as persimmons, pears, and pomegranate, this cider embodies the essence of both cider and Fall. Please try it.
Barb, blogger of Creative Culinary has a plethora of apple cider cocktails on the blog; she simply loves the stuff. Her recipe includes apple cider and prosecco, but there are a few special ingredients that you must simply check out.
Vanilla ice cream and bubbly sparkling apple cider!?! Allison, blogger of Celebrating Sweets was win-ing when she created this spectacular, floaty of goodness. If the picture doesn’t make you want to make this then head to Allison’s blog to read the recipe. Yep, you’re going to want to make it for sure after that.
Honey, apples, and cinnamon, what more could you need in a cocktail. I think this is a winning combo for sure. Ana, blogger of Hello Glow says, “If you never tried this combination, I’ll tell you something for sure – the strong fruity taste of the apple cider, the warming effect of the bourbon, the sweet honey and cinnamon flavor – all these are the perfect way to celebrate seasons transition.” I couldn’t agree more.
