I truly enjoyed this drink for days and it is my beloved cocktail for fall. Not only was the cocktail incredible, but the process of making homemade apple cider was so much fun! The apples boiling in the pot with fall spices made the house smell so incredible. I couldn’t help but smile the whole time it was brewing! I’ve mentioned before that I completely admire fall aromas and there really is no better scent than a giant pot of apples simmering for hours, yum. To make the cocktail I used BelleWood Vodka, a handcrafted vodka made from… are you ready? Apples, ahhh! I thought I liked vodka and lemonade, but I love vodka and apple cider even more! The process of making cider isn’t too difficult…it takes time because the apples need to boil for a few hours, but once you have everything in the pot, you can step away and let the aroma overtake your home.

 

 

Homemade Apple Cider (makes 5 cups cider)
10-12 apples, cut into fours without core
1/2 cup sugar, or if you want it less sweet add just 1/4 cup
6 cinnamon sticks or 1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cloves
8 cups water (or enough to fill the pot a few inches above the apples)

 

Place apples in a large stockpot with water. Stir in the sugar, spices and add in the cinnamon sticks. Bring to a boil for 1 hour. Then cover and simmer for another hour.

 

Place a strainer over a large bowl and pour the mixture in the strainer. Discard the apples. Strain the cider again through a cheese cloth by placing it over a bowl. This will ensure all the chunks are removed.

Pour into a glass pitcher and refrigerate.

 

Apple Cider Cocktail
Fill an 8 oz glass to the top with ice.
Pour 1 shot (or more if you want to get crazy ; )) of BelleWood Vodka over the ice and fill the rest with cider.
Stir to mix ingredients and garnish with a cinnamon stick and an apple slice.
Enjoy the most delicious fall cocktail ever! Yum yummy yumminess!!
