Fall is in full swing in Seattle and in our household. Last night we put a few logs in our wood stove and made a batch of our favorite spiced hot apple cider. I love this recipe because its simple to make yet so good to drink. And for a grown up version, I poured a shot of spiced rum into my husband’s glass which really made for a a delightful warm Fall type cocktail. Anyway you have it, hot apple cider will warm your bellies with Fall goodness. Enjoy!

    We’re on the same wavelength—I’m getting ready to post a recipe for mulled apple cider too. Just bought a big jug from apple picking. Nice addition of fresh ginger to yours.

    This cider looks incredible. I love drinking cider in the fall- I grew up just down the street from a great apple orchard in Minnesota and I looked forward to their apple cider every year. I’ve missed it so much since moving to Japan. I’ve only found apple juice here. *sigh*
