Jack's Cider

Monday, October 17, 2011

There's nothing like a warm cup of apple cider on a crisp fall night to get you feeling warm and fuzzy. That is of course unless it is spiked with some Jack Daniel's, now you're really feeling warm and fuzzy!

I made this recipe the other night for a party. Judging by the huge grins and squinty eyes at the end of the night, it was a hit!

I'm not one for overly sweet drinks or even mixed drinks (I am more of a beer, wine, or tequila on the rocks type of girl),  but this Jack Cider is not too sweet and not too tart. Just the perfect combination of flavors. I'd like to think that this drink is the quintessential fall cocktail. That and maybe the pumpkin latte.

2 cups of your favorite apple cider
1/2 cup Jack Daniel's Tennessee Honey
2 cinnamon sticks
2 cloves
*makes about 2 large drinks

Simmer until warm and serve. Make sure to remove the cloves before you drink.

Careful, they go down easy!



  1. This is perfect. I'm having a birthday party for my husband, and he said he wanted apple cider and some sort of alcohol (besides beer). Why not combine the two??

  2. I hope your husband enjoys his birthday and his birthday drink! Let me know what you think of the cider.

    : )

  3. I just recently had Jack Daniel's Honey--wow is it good. I Like bourbon, but was not a jack daniel's fan until this. Your recipe with apple cider sounds devine. I think I'll have to post it on my site.


  4. This looks fabulous for a nice cold night with the fireplace going!
