Weekly Recipe: Apple Pie in a Jar

I served this tasty drink at our party last night. It is based on a yummy punch I had last year at my friend Kelly's Halloween party. It is delicious when served cold or warm, and is a perfect fall party drink. Be careful, it has a tendency of sneaking up on you though! And yes, you will feel crazy when walking into a liquor store asking where the Everclear is. Just warning you.

Apple Pie in a Jar

Recipe adapted from
24 servings, 30 minutes prep, takes several hours to cool

4 dashes cinnamon
1 dash nutmeg

1. In a large pot, heat cider, cinnamon sticks, and sugar over medium-high heat until it reaches a rolling boil.

2. Remove cinnamon sticks and remove pot from heat, letting the mixture cool to room temperature (we let it sit overnight).
