Hot Cider on a Cold Day

apple cider mix

We've been working hard to get my studio ready, and the day has finally arrived when I can fire up the press! Too bad it is so dang cold outside. My dad installed a wood stove for us to help keep the place warm, and I thought it might be fun to have some cider boiling on top.

Here's my recipe:
a dash of ground cloves
4 cinnamon sticks
one star anise
a big handful of red hots

Kevin also likes to add a shot of cinnamon schnapps for an extra kick.

Red Hots? I never would've thought of that.
