• Hot Whiskey Apple Cider Winter

Hot Whiskey Apple Cider

Winter holidays are coming, and we need to make certain preparations! I am not talking about buying presents and decorating Christmas tree; I’m talking about holiday parties. We all love attending holiday parties, hang out with our friend and, of course, meet new ones. I want to present a super nice cocktail for the winter events. This hot cider with some spices, a little bit of whiskey, and whipped cream, will warm you up and create a nice festive mood.

Hot Whiskey Apple Cider


  • cider - 1 bottle (25 oz)
  • orange zest - 3-4 stripes
  • freshly squeezed orange juice - 1/2 cup
  • cinnamon sticks - 2
  • whole cloves - 2 tsps
  • fresh ginger - 1 inch piece, peeled
  • ground nutmeg - 1/4 tsp
  • honey - 3-5 tbsp, or to taste
  • whiskey - 1 cup
  • whipped cream - to taste


  1. Pour the apple cider into a medium pot and add all the ingredients except the whiskey and the whipped cream.
  2. Slowly bring to a simmer over low heat. Simmer for 8-10 minutes.
  3. Remove from the heat and add the whiskey.
  4. Pour into serving glasses and top with the whipped cream.
  5. Serve immediately. You can also garnish this drink with cinnamon sticks or candy canes.
