Lovely Libations: Spiced & Spiked Cider

DXEWQP37Fft13g7O4sSvBEDT.jpeg:Amazon:photo

To me, nothing smells more like the holidays than a cup of warm spiked cider. Even my favorite scented candles don’t compare. I like to make a big batch of it on cold, cozy nights. It makes my entire house smell nice, and I love having a pot on hand for when guests come over. My recipe is simple and delicious, and it will warm you right up. Without further ado, here is my favorite recipe for spiced and spiked cider…

Spiced & Spiked Cider

  • 2 oranges, sliced

In a large pot, heat all ingredients except the Malibu Island Spiced Rum to boiling over medium heat, saving one of the oranges to use as garnish. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 10 minutes before serving.

Strain the mixture to remove the cloves. Add a shot of Malibu Island Spiced Rum to each serving.

Add the remaining fresh orange slices to each cup, serve hot, and enjoy!

Do you have a favorite recipe you like to make during the holidays?

I hope you all give this spiced and spiked cider a try. I know you will love it!

  • Whitney @ To live & diet in L.a.

    This looks delicious but there’s so much sugar in apple cider :( Does anyone have any ideas for a lightened up version of this? I’ve been wracking my brain for ideas and can’t think of any…maybe a sugarfree apple juice instead?

    Yum!

  • Serenaxx107

    Sugar free products are really horrible for you!! Perhaps you could try adding water instead. That’s what we do with our juice and some store bought teas. I don’t like apple cider so I’m not really sure how just adding water would work but it may be worth a try :]

    Where is that mug from?! I need it!!!!!

    This looks delish! I think I’d like it with whiskey instead of rum, as well! :)

    I just made this exact recipe this weekend but we used Wild Turkey American Honey Whisky. It was really good, I like it better than rum.

  • Ashley
