Spiked Apple Cider for Harvest Moon
Grumpy and I rarely go out on an actual date. However, this year we celebrated my birthday early during the Harvest Moon at Windham Mountain. We celebrated the oncoming fall in style and saw the beautiful harvest moon from the mountaintop.
After a couple of hot toddies and appetizers, we went back down the Skyride to the lodge where Chef Arquette served us a delicious 5-course meal. This was an experience that we both will remember and look forward to doing again!
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.
What is a Hot Toddy
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.
Generally made of Whiskey, boiling water, a tea bag, honey, and lemon juice. The honey to soothe the throat and alcohol added to numb!
Heat your apple cider on the stovetop or microwave to your desired warmth. Pour into a mug and add 1 shot glass of Fireball Whisky.
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.
