I love a good, warm cocktail. Give me a hot toddy or some mulled wine by the fire and I'm a happy camper (except not literally because I hate camping). I made this warm holiday cocktail recently (let's call it a spiked mulled cider), and it was delicious! And super easy to make. Enjoy!
4 Cups Apple Juice
2 Cinnamon Sticks
2 Tbsp Mulling Spices
2 Tbsp Sugar
Diced Fruit (You can get creative here. I happened to have an apple, orange, and dried cranberries, so I used those.)
2 - 4 Shots of Tequila (depending on how happy you want to get. Remember, some of the alcohol will burn off)
1. Combine apple juice, cinnamon sticks, and mulling spices in a pot. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for ten minutes.
2. Use a slotted spoon to remove most of the mulling spices from the pot.
3. Add sugar, dried fruit, and tequila. Mix well, serve warm. Cheers!
