DIRECTIONS

  • Bring all ingredients EXCEPT EVERCLEAR to a soft boil. Simmer for 30-45 minutes.
  • Let cool and stir in Everclear. If you prefer a clear liquid, strain the mixture before adding the Everclear.
  • I store the majority of it in the juice bottles that it came inches For gifts, I either pour into a mason jar with a fresh cinnamon stick or pretty glass bottle with a cork or stopper.
  • Store in the fridge, serve hot, like regular cider or iced. Also great for mixing into other cocktails.
  • I serve this with Arroz con Leche on cold nights for dessert.
