Thirsty Thursday

Another Thursday, another cocktail. Here’s a good one… Hot Caramel Apple Hard Cider! Perfect for the winter. I found this great recipe at Cooking in College.

Ingredients
1/2 gallon Apple Cider (I used spiced cider)
1/2 bottle of Caramel Vodka
1 Tbsp Cinnamon
1/4 cup brown sugar

Instructions
Mix all the ingredients in a large pot. Heat over low-medium heat. Stir occasionally until the mixture begins to steam (Don’t overheat. The alcohol will burn off.)

While the cider is warming, take your glasses and rim them with brown sugar.

Drink Up!

Thirsty Thursday

In honor of Thirsty Thursday, I am going to start posting a recipe for my favorite drinks every week. This weeks drink is a Sparkling Pear Cocktail from Cooking Light. I made this for Thanksgiving and they were delicious. Plus, it’s the easiest recipe to make.
