I added 2T of sweetened consensed milk (I had left over from another recipe). OMG!!! It tasted like butterscotch discs had melted on my tongue good! Move over warmed cider...You've been replaced!
I doubled the brown sugar (sweet tooth) and added milk for more of an Irish Creme drink. Gosh this was good. I think I'll make this at Christmas instead of warm cider. Thanks for sharing.
Smooth drink, but definitely needs more than a dash of cinnamon. I used 1/2 teaspoon, and then added a dash of ground cloves. Thanks for posting.
