It’s supposed to be spring, but as usual, our Vermont winter is still hanging around. Since night time is still chilly, and we are too cheap to turn up the heat in our house, we’ve been keeping warm with Mulled Over, heated up. Usually we just drink it by itself, but sometimes it’s nice to mix things up. Mulling spices go fabulously with apple – hence they are the same spices used in apple pie. So I made an adult beverage that is frankly more bourbon than apple or pie, but those flavors definitely come through! This is good hot or cold, by the way, just like pie. So drink it this summer too!
2 oz bourbon
1 oz Mulled Over
1 oz apple cider
1 drop orange bitters
Mix together, stick in microwave for 30 seconds, and garnish with a cinnamon stick or a sprinkle of cinnamon on top.
