Whiskey Apple Cider

Pin It Print Friendly and PDF

I was browsing through my cocktail recipes and realized... It's time for some warm drinks. Enough of those cold cocktails. It's cold at night! I want to be warmed up from the inside.

Enter apple cider. And whiskey. I know a lot of you aren't whiskey fans -- but -- the whiskey works so perfectly with the apple cider. It's like they are playing together. So my challenge is this: just try it.

  • 1 shot Whiskey
  • 1 shot Water
  • 3 shots Apple Cider
  • 1/2 teaspoon Honey
  • 2 shakes Ground Cinnamon
  • 2 shakes Ground Cloves
Directions: Combine ingredients in stove top pot and heat, stirring occasionally, on low heat. Ready to serve once it's warm. Top with whipped cream for a bonus :) 

Advice: Pair this with Pumpkin Curry Soup for some real heat or Pine Nut Sage Risotto to class it up!


  1. I'm making toasting cider for a fall wedding - would this recipe also work served at room temp? Also is it cloudy? I was going to use fireball whiskey in lue of whisky and cinnamon sticks....

    1. Hey -
      Yep, it works at any temperature! I'd give it a stir before serving if it's been sitting for a while, just because apple cider in general has a tendency to settle a bit, but that would probably happen with any apple cider recipe! That sounds like such a creative fall wedding idea! If you end up doing it, I'd love to see a pic! :)

  2. Hi, this sounds great! Do you have any recommendations for a whiskey that works well with this?
