Oh, I forgot to rate this! I am making it again! Its sooooooooo good! I hold out the booze, to let the adults put it in. Great Hot Drink on a cold day! Kids and Adults alike LOVE this!
Fantastic. Spicy and not too sweet, a great drink for fall weather. Served today at an outdoor gathering and let each person add their choice of booze. Rum and Apple schnapps were equally as tasty. Thanks for a great hot drink. Made for beverage tag, " This Rounds on Me."
This was a big hit when I brought it to a Christmas dinner - such a big hit, the hosts kept the leftovers. :) This would not fit in my crockpot, so I omitted the water and cut back on the apple cider by a few cups. We used Skyy Spiced Vodka for the booze, adding it to individual mugs so that the children and nondrinkers could also enjoy this. I also garnished each mug by floating in a clove-studded orange wedge. Thank you for a great recipe that just might become a tradition for us (and thank you for your email help, too :))
Delicious! Only about 1/2 of this recipe would fit in my crockpot, so I used about 1/2 the amount of the juices/cider/water specified, but used the while orange studded with 9 cloves, 2 cinnamon sticks, the whole nutmeg, 3 cardamom pods and skipped the ginger. We also opted for people adding rum individually to their cups of punch. As the punch decreased I added the rest of the cider/cranberrry juice and water and another cinnamon stick. Very good spiced cider which we enjoyed! Thanks for sharing!
