Gifts of Autumn + a recipe

spoiled-i-am

He really is the better half 💗 My super amazing hubby likes to surprise me with gifts. Which he knows I love because they are unplanned, spur of the moment and not given at the traditional birthday, Christmas, Yule, etc…. We exchange gifts for those too, but he likes me to feel pampered and will get me things I would never spend the money on because “they aren’t practical”. And he wants more for me.

So after opening my super awesome presents I decided a great accompaniment  to the fruit would be a nice hot cup of semi-homemade cider. The apples are wrapped in chocolate and caramel so the sound of cider along with the fruit sounded so good! So I made some cider!

Throw It Together Quick Cider

4-5 cups apple juice

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon nutmeg

a couple drops of artificial caramel, or rum flavoring, to taste (optional)

garnish with a cinnamon stick or apple slice (if you have it and want to make it pretty)

 

Heat the apple juice and spices in a small pot, stir over medium heat, reducing heat as it starts to get hotter. Keep stirring so the spices fully dissolve or you will have clumps in your cider. Last, before removing from heat add in the artificial  flavoring if adding it, stir for a moment or two. Serve hot and enjoy a cozy cup of autumnautumn_leaves_png3582
