Warm *Special* Apple Cider Recipe

Some of you have asked me about the cider recipe I've been talking about on Twitter. Well, it's pretty delicious and I'm happy to share. The only thing is, there is no real recipe. I just sort of add some extra ingredients to normal cider to make it extra amazing. I got this idea from Jordan's sister a couple years ago and one rainy day last month Jordan and I just got this craving. It guess it was just a warm cider kind of day.
What you'll need:
1 Apple
Dark Rum (optional)
Cut your apple into slices. Add them to a large pot and saute them in butter, sugar and cinnamon. I honestly just added what I thought was a good amount, there are no real measurements here. Continue to saute until the apple slices have softened and the ingredients have started to caramelize. Then pour the entire jug of Cider into the pot. Keep over heat, stirring, for another five minutes or so until the mixture becomes an even consistency. Then, if you'd like to make it a little more special, the drink tastes great with a dark rum. The amount you add is up to you. ;] Enjoy!


  1. I've actually never had apple cider (I don't think), but this sounds so so good!

  2. I haven't had any apple cider yet this winter.
