64 oz. fresh local apple cider
3-4 sticks cinnamon
8-10 whole cloves
1 inch chunk ginger, cut into 3-4 pieces
1/3 cup honey (or to taste)
1 1/2 cups vodka or everclear (again, to taste)
This is a DELICIOUS an potent warming wintertime adult beverage. Drink with caution, as it doesn't taste alcoholic!
Gently simmer the cider and spices together for approx 45 minutes. Add honey, stir until dissolved, and let mixture cool completely. Add vodka or everclear, and taste. Bottle, label, and drink! I especially like it hot, garnished with a cinnamon stick and bit of lemon.
