Hot Fireball Apple Cider
First Published: September 28, 2016… Last Updated: February 12, 2021

Hot Fireball Apple Cider is a hot toddy made with Fireball Whisky and apple cider. This Fall cocktail will have you toasty and warm in even the chilliest of days or evenings! It is the perfect beverage to serve in the fall when the apples are in season and fresh cider is abundant. I love to enjoy this spiked apple cider when standing around the firepit with a hot beverage, conversing with friends and staying toasty warm.

Fireball Apple Cider is also a great adult beverage to serve on Christmas Eve while the family is gathered around the fireplace, or your snuggling up to your loved one watching a movie.

My Very First Fireball Apple Cider

This year I celebrated my birthday early and participated in the Harvest Moon Dinner at Windham Mountain. I celebrated my birthday and the oncoming fall in style, taking a chairlift to the mountain top for appetizers and drinks. Then, later saw the beautiful harvest moon during dinner.

After a couple of hot toddies and appetizers, we went back down the Skyride to the lodge where the Chef served us a delicious 5-course meal. At the beginning of our evening, while at the top of the mountain enjoying our charcuterie board, we were offered libations of our choice. I was quite chilly, so to warm up, my choice for the evening wasa spiked apple cider made with Fireball Whisky. 

Every time I get chilly in the fall, my mind takes me back to that evening and I immediately am ready to warm up with a hot Fireball Apple Cider beverage.

At the beginning of our evening, while at the top of the mountain enjoying our charcuterie board, we were offered other libations of our choice. I was quite chilly, so to warm up, my choice for the evening was a spiked apple cider made with Fireball Whisky. 

A Hot Toddy To Keep You Warm

One important thing to know about a hot toddy is that it is generally known as hot whiskey. Usually made as a nightcap or as a beverage for when your feeling under the weather with a sore throat, cold, or flu.

This Fireball Apple Cider Hot Toddy is on the sweeter side and delicious warm. If you love cinnamon, then you will love this beverage.

What you need to make Hot Fireball Apple Cider

The recipe is straightforward! We are in a home of just two people. So, it is easy to just warm up a cup of apple cider and spike it with a shot of Fireball Whisky. The microwave is our best friend on cold winter nights!

Apple Cider: There IS a difference in apple cider. If you can buy it from a local orchard, that is the best way to buy it. Trust me. The cider in the grocery store, unless it’s in season and is directly from a local orchard, is NOT the same. However, it will work when you have no other choice

Fireball Whisky: This cinnamon flavored whiskey is sweet, spicy, and has some good kick.

    This sounds delicous to me. I have never heard of Fireball Whiskey but I do have some Hot Damn Schnapps on my shelf that I think would work perfectly.

    Can the Firebsll whiskey be added to the cider in the pot when it’s warming?

    • Shelby Law Ruttan February 15, 2021 at 12:58 pm - Reply

      I prefer not to heat alcohol when I am making a beverage. The shot of whisky won’t change the temperature enough to say so and I can’t say how much of the alcohol evaporates when it is heated up.
