Amaretto Spiced Apple Cider

When tailgating for a night game sometimes a cold beer does not appeal. It’s getting cooler at night which means a warm beverage would be most appreciated. Spiced cider to the rescue! But instead of being spiked with rum I used amaretto. The almond flavor pairs exceptionally well with apples. It’ll warm you up from the inside.

But wait, here’s some more spiced apple cider:

One year ago: Stuffed Red Velvet Truffles Two years ago: Homemade Yellow Cake Mix

  1. In a large saucepan, combine cider, allspice, and nutmeg. Heat over medium until warmed and almost boiling. Remove from heat and stir in amaretto.
  2. Serve garnished with apple slices and cinnamon sticks.
