Brrrr…nothing like a foot of snow to chill you to the bone 🙁

This Apple Cider will warm you right up! Delicious with or without Brandy 😉


  • 1 Gal Apple Cider
  • 1 tbsp. whole Allspice
  • 1 tsp. freshly grated Nutmeg
  • 4 whole Cloves
  • 3 Cinnamon Sticks
  • 1 Vanilla Bean…opened lengthwise.
  • Apple Brandy or Bourbon to taste…optional


  • Add Cider.. Allspice.. Nutmeg.. Cloves…Cinnamon sticks to a large pot.
  • Scrape out seeds from Vanilla Bean…add them to pot along with the bean pod.
  • Bring Spiced Cider just to a simmer over medium heat…reduce heat to a low simmer.
  • Cook just below a simmer for about 1 hour.
  • Strain Cider through a sieve into another pot or heatproof punch bowl to remove solid ingredients.
  • If using Brandy or Bourbon…add it at this point…
  • Ladle Hot Spiced Cider into cups….aaahhh…delicious 😉
