Great for gifts or just for your own guzzling-apple-cider needs!
For the mulling spice:
Preheat the oven to 200ºF, and put a piece of parchment paper down. Scatter the zest, peel and pith over the parchment paper and bake for about 1 hour until dry.
Meanwhile, place the cinnamon sticks in a Ziploc and wrap in a beach towel. I used the back side of a hatchet to smash up the cinnamon sticks (but I bet a hammer or big rolling pin would work well, too).
Mix everything gently together and store in an airtight container. Makes enough mulling spice for 24 servings.
For the mulled apple cider:
Add 1 tablespoon of the spice for each 8 ounces of apple cider and bring to a simmer. Strain and serve hot!
Tastes indulgent, but your waistline will thank you! This hot chocolate is so versatile. Omit the cinnamon for your standard variety, omit the whipped cream for dairy-free, or add coffee liqueur for a festive cold-weather cocktail.
We’re all familiar with adding rum to eggnog. Well, one of my favorite cocktails is a Black Russian so I changed it up a bit. I do keep Kahlua on hand but for those who may not, here’s an eggnog Black Russian that’s made using instant coffee granules. It’s an economical option to purchasing a whole bottle of Kahlua!
