How to Make It

Add the cider, cinnamon, ginger, and allspice to a saucepan over medium heat and whisk together. When the cider is hot, reduce the heat to a simmer and add the apple brandy and whiskey. Stir well, remove from the heat, divide between two mugs, and garnish each with an apple slice and cinnamon stick. Enjoy!

Why We Like It

Whiskey is great for giving you a false sense of warmth, but it’s also fantastic in hot cocktails. This is especially true when the holidays have come and gone and you’re faced with three more months of biting weather, dangerous ice and dead trees.
