Ginger Spiked Apple Cider

Here in New York it’s not hard to find a tasty gallon of fresh pressed apple cider. I love it’s freshness and it’s a million times better tasting then apple juice…in my opinion. However, how do you take something perfect and make it better? Give it a little splash of dark spiced rum…oh yes! 

This drink is perfect for sipping at a party or even while sitting at home wrapping presents. That’s right. Wrapping presents is not the same if you don’t have a little drink to keep you company. Trust me on this one. Drinking makes it’s a million times better. Cheers!!!

    I’m not a huge fan of apple juice but cider is a whole other thing! It’s just so good. But you’re right – even better with some alcohol!

    Hi All,
    This recipe looks devine. I priced ginger liqueur with the LCBO and it is frightfully expensive. I may have to opt of ginger syrup as an option and sip it alcohol free. Sure will be tasty.
    Merry Christmas, All.
