Hot Caramel Apple Cider


Given that my boys (all three of them, my husband included, actually) don't drink coffee, when they want something warm in the morning, it's either tea or, if they want something sweet, hot cider. With the apple syrup and caramel sauce from event sponsor Torani*, this mug of deliciousness was an extra special treat!


Me, I like my cider, plain...well, with a cinnamon stick is fine!

Ingredients serves 4

Hot Cider
  • 5 C apple cider
  • 2 cinnamon sticks + more for garnish
  • 3 whole cloves
  • 2 cardamom pods, cracked open
  • 2 T mulling spices (my homemade version)
  • 3 pieces candied ginger
  • peel from 1 organic lemon (I used a Meyer lemon) + more for garnish

Garnish
  • 1 C whipping cream
  • 1 T apple syrup (prefer Torani)
  • caramel sauce (prefer Torani), as needed
  • ground cinnamon, as needed

Procedure

Hot Cider
Place all of the ingredients - except the syrup - in a large pot. Bring to a boil, reduce heat immediately. Simmer for 5 to 10 minutes. Strain out spices. Pour strained cider into mugs. Set aside.


Garnish
Add whipping cream and apple syrup to a mixing bowl. Beat until peaks form. Add a dollop to each mug. 



Sprinkle with ground cinnamon and drizzle with caramel sauce. Serve immediately.

You may find Torani on the web
on Twitter, on Pinterest, on Instagram, and on Facebook.
