I keep saying that and hoping that maybe it will make the weather turn colder. We finally had a wild storm last night and our power went out this morning, but it still doesn't feel quite cold enough for the middle of October.
We've had balloon fiesta though, and the sky cleared just in time for the balloons to take off.
But Autumn is my favorite season and I'm not going to avoid celebrating it just because it's not cold, so here's a recipe for Spiced Cider.
It tastes great as written or there's an option to add some whiskey.
4 cup apple cider
1/2 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/2 tsp nutmeg
If desired, add 1/2 cup of whiskey
Combine everything together in a pot and simmer for 15 minutes. You can use ground spices as well, but it will make the cider more grainy.
You can also put in all in the slow cooker for several hours, and the house will smell amazing.
Not pretty, but I promise it tastes awesome.
Have a great weekend.
Thanks for reading, see you soon.
