Pro Tips

  • Got a sweet tooth? Add maple syrup or a pinch or two of brown sugar.

  • Substitute spiced rum for spiced whisky (like Fireball) if that’s more your speed.

  • Looking to make a bigger batch for a holiday party? Multiply the ingredients by six to make just over one gallon of spiked apple cider. And don’t forget the ladle!
