With whipped cream and honeyed walnuts, this drink is like dessert. And when made without bourbon, it's perfect for children. I found this recipe in Martha Stewart Living magazine.
- 6 cups fresh apple cider
- 2 tablespoons packed dark brown sugar
- 2 whole nutmeg seeds
- 1 vanilla bean, split and scraped
- 3⁄4 cup Bourbon (6oz)
- whipped cream
- Combine cider, brown sugar, nutmeg seeds, and vanilla bean in a medium saucepan. Gently simmer over medium-low heat for 15 minutes. Remove from heat, and add bourbon if desired. Remove and discard solids.
- Divide among 6 mugs or heatproof glasses, and top each with a dollop of whipped cream and a few honeyed walnuts.
