Spiked Caramel Apple Cider

Fall is in the air!  Isn’t it lovely?  I really do love fall.  It comes with pumpkin scones at Starbucks, boots and skinny jeans, chunky sweaters, flannels, warm drinks, and pretty trees changing their leaves from green to yellow-orange-red.  If I could, I would probably keep this season for most of the year and then switch back into summer for a bit to enjoy the lakes (I live in Minnesota).

With the cooler temps outside, I’m excitedly getting into trying a few new warm alcoholic beverages.  I love me some Chai and RumChata, but am always on the hunt for something else fun and festive.  This Spiked Caramel Apple Cider won’t disappoint.

As with most of my adult beverages, I try to keep things simple.  This drink has only 2 ingredients.  Apple cider and caramel vodka.  Simple, delicious and festive. Done.

Not wanting to directly microwave the vodka, I took my mug and microwaved my apple cider to slightly warmer then what I would normally drink.  Then I added the room-temperature shot of caramel vodka and voila!  Spiked Caramel Apple Cider.
