No one, that’s who.
Especially not the winter beverage geniuses over at Curio and Roger’s Liquid Oasis. In fact, these cocktail creators came up with a unique, hot spiked cider recipe that will keep your blood warm probably through all of spring.
To start, you’re going to need some apple cider which, yes, they do sell year-round at your local grocery store. The rest is either a quick trip to your liquor store or a simple do-it-yourself recipe.
Check out the recipe and send away any winter blues with a drink that’s warm, delicious, and keeps on giving.
In a large saucepan, bring 32oz of Apple Cider to a simmer.
Add the following:
3 cinnamon sticks
4 orange slices studded with cloves
1.5 oz Demerara
4 oz Averna
12 oz Maison Rouge VS Cognac
8 dashes Angostura Bitters
Turn off heat, cover, and let steep for 10 minutes. Serve warm and garnish with fresh rosemary, sage, and lemon twists.
Enjoy in your favorite mug, glass, tumbler, or whatever you can get your hands on!
