What says fall more than apple cider? This simple recipe comes together quickly and we love to enjoy it all cozied up on your sofa or fireside on a cool autumn evening.

Not only does it look amazing, but the aroma of spices and apples makes your home smell absolutely delightful. You can easily craft a mocktail version as well, just hold the bourbon!

  • Pour the juice, cider, spices and cinnamon sticks into a pot. Bring to a boil.
  • Reduce to a simmer and let the cider simmer for 10 minutes to allow the flavors to combine – a bit longer is okay too!
