The temperatures are finally dropping. Here is a great winter cocktail featuring Short Mountain Apple Pie Moonshine that will keep you and your guests warm this winter!
2 quarts apple cider
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
10 cinnamon sticks
2 tsp whole cloves
Short Mountain Apple Pie Moonshine
To start, press cloves all over the surface of the orange, like a pincushion. Cut the orange into quarters.
In your crock pot, drop in the brown sugar, pour in the apple cider, and stir. Drop in the orange slices and cinnamon sticks, and set your crockpot to warm. Cover the cider until hot. Heating takes about 2-3 hours. Once hot, keep covered and warming to keep the cocktail at the perfect temperature. Any guests to your home will enjoy the warm inviting aroma that will greet them as they arrive.
You can enjoy this winter creation on its own, or with a full 1.5oz shot of Short Mountain Apple Pie moonshine in each 6oz mug for a strong yet delicious Hot Apple Pie Toddy.
