If fall cocktails had a power ranking system, spiked cider would be the preseason No. 1 favorite and probably ride that out to a undefeated season and championship parade. Warm it up, throw a little bourbon or Fireball in there and you’re good to go.
You want to step it up and really knock your friends drunken socks off? Put that sh*t in a hollowed out apple cup and you’re looking at a hall of fame, all-time great seasonal cocktail. Michael Jordan, Waynze Gretzky, Serena Williams… Spiked cider in an apple mug.
