Bourbon Maple Apple Cider

2013 November 8

I just love maple flavored anything so a cocktail with real maple syrup is my cup of tea…or bourbon in this case! Served hot or cold one thing’s for sure; this Bourbon Maple Apple Cider will warm you all the way through. Happy Friday friends!

    Yum! And of course, a stripey straw makes everything taste better…

    I’m not a fan of bourbon, but this sounds amazing. I actually have everything at home already, so it should probably happen ASAP.

    Can this be served warm? I would like to take a crockpot of it to a thanksgiving party.

      If you serve it warm, just make sure not to add in the alcohol while it’s heating. You can keep a crockpot of the cider and then add bourbon to the individual glasses!

    We served these cold for our Turkey Day in Austria, hosting a local family. Rave reviews! I didn’t have “spiced” apple cider, so I used good apple juice and added a dash of cinnamon, allspice, and a mini-dash of cayenne pepper.
