Fall Cinnamon Cider

Fall is finally here! Well, it's still in the 80's to 90's here in Texas but Fall weather is on its way! Today, I wanted to share with you a recipe I learned from a friend, Fall Cinnamon Cider! I'm not sure if her family has a name for it but it sure is good and that's what I'm going to call it!


Here Is What You'll Need
Orange juice, Cranberry juice & two boxes of Red Hots*, pretty simple!
Start by pouring in the entire carton of Orange juice into a large pot. Next, add in only half of your Cranberry juice. You should have a nice orange-ish red color. Now, pour in one to two boxes of Red Hots *I used two boxes but I like lots of cinnamon. Start by adding one box and add more to your taste*. Turn your burner to high and heat your liquid until all of the Red Hots have melted. Stir occasionally so that your Red Hots don't stick to the bottom of the pot.
You can also hollow out an apple to serve your Cinnamon Cider in, but this is optional. I do think it's a nice touch and the juices seeping from the apple makes it taste even better! By the way, this will make your house smell wonderful! When I smell this, I definitely think of Fall/Winter.
Now, was that simple or what? You can drink it warm by itself, or if you're feeling a little naughty, you can add some Captain Morgan's Spiced Rum or Fireball Whiskey. It is also tasty served cold with a touch of Vodka! Enjoy!

  1. I love the idea of drinking out of an apple. I'm looking forward to cooler weather here in Georgia, too. Fall just doesn't last long enough in the south. Your cider looks delicious! Thanks for sharing on Sweet Indulgences Sunday.

  5. the weather here in the UK has already turned into a comforting cold, and this sounds absolutely delicious... but we don't have Red Hots over here! I think I'm going to google and see if we have our own substitute...

    looks yum!
