Hot Spiced Cider: Smoke Rise Inn Recipe

AppleWhat a difference a week makes... especially after ~16 inches of snow in Kinnelon [and ~30 inches for parts of West Milford!], which toppled trees and led to intense power outages. Assuming you are close-to-being-back-to-normal, I bet you're ready for this treat: Hot Spiced Cider from the Smoke Rise Inn!

Randy Polo, General Manager of the Smoke Rise Inn, shares with us the following recipe...

Hot Spiced Cider

If you’re fortunate enough to have a chilly weekend around Halloween, mix up a batch of Hot Spiced Cider.

It’s a great drink to share while gathering with neighbors around the fire pit or while tailgating with friends at the game. This drink will set things right.

2 quarts apple cider 4 cloves
3 cinnamon sticks
5 shots Applejack or Apple Brandy

Heat cider with cloves and cinnamon, add booze and stir. Pat the rims of mugs in brown sugar and serve the cider in them.

Doesn't this sound perfect? I could have used some Hot Spiced Cider after today's delayed Halloween Parade and, certainly, after going trick-or-treating with Emma tonight.

I hope you are all safe and weathered the freak storm safely.
