Bourbon Spiked Hot Apple Cider

(Makes 4 Drinks)

4 Cups Apple Cider

1 Cinnamon Stick

1 Tbsp. Orange Juice 

3 Cloves (whole)

1 Star Anise (whole)

 

In a pot combine the apple cider, cinnamon stick, orange juice, cloves, and star anise. Bring it to a boil. Then lower and simmer for 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and strain. Put into glasses and add 2 ounces (2 shots) of bourbon to each drink. Garnish with an orange slice and a stick of cinnamon. 

The cider mixture can be made in advance and kept warm. Add the bourbon when you’re about to serve. This drink can also be served cold.
