The Spiked Apple Cider is a warm and comforting winter cocktail that combines the flavors of apple cider and your choice of spirit. It’s made with apple cider, cinnamon sticks, nutmeg and your choice of spirit, such as rum, brandy, or whiskey, and is typically served in a heatproof glass or mug. The apple cider provides a warm and comforting base, while the cinnamon and nutmeg add a touch of warmth and spice.
