The Perfect Apple Cider for Fall

The Perfect Apple Cider for Fall - Too Polished

October 8, 2018

I’m trying not to bombard you guys with too many fall recipes this month (honestly, it’s pretty tough) but I thought apple cider would be a nice change to the baked goods I typically post. And you know what? I was sorry I didn’t make it sooner!

But hey, better late than never! This drink is perfect for those that aren’t the biggest fan of pumpkin treats but still enjoy a little bit of fall in their lives. Warm drinks are my jam, but I’m not always up for coffee at 7pm so apple cider is the perfect fall substitute. It’s also pretty nice that I can make it at home with little effort, and freeze any remaining cider to sip on later.

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 1-2 hours

Makes about 8-12 servings

Wash all of the fruit and cut them into quarters.

In a large pot, bring water to a boil and place all of the ingredients inside. Reduce heat to medium and simmer for 1-2 hours (I chose 2). The longer it simmers, the more the flavors mix.

Strain the apple cider into a clean pot.

Serve hot with an cinnamon stick. Freeze extra cider for later enjoyment.

. . . 

There you go! The best little warming drink to keep you in full-on fall mode. If you’re attending a party, you can even add bourbon or whiskey to make this an adult beverage.

So curl up, sip slowly, and watch Hocus Pocus!
