Warm Vanilla (spiked) CiderPosted: September 25, 2009
Mmmmm..I love apple cider. So good warm with some cinnamon. So when I saw this recipe in the latest Martha Stewart Living, I knew I would love it and I did. Warm, deep with flavor and a great fall feel.
6 cups fresh apple cider
2 tbsp packed brown sugar
2 whole nutmeg seeds
1 vanilla bean split and scraped
3/4 cup bourbon
Combine apple cider, brown sugar, nutmeg, and vanilla bean (split and scraped) into a medium sauce pan. Gently simmer over medium -low heat for 15 mins. Remove from heat and discard solids. Add bourbon. Divide among 6 mugs and top with a bit of whipped cream. Serve warm.
