25 Days of Christmas Cocktails, Day 13: Old Grand-Dad’s Furnace

Coming in from the cold to a hot spiked cider is one of the season’s purest pleasures. Here, sweet apple cider and bourbon (high proof, if you’ve got it) are made just a bit more festive with the addition of clove, cinnamon and Demerara syrup.

Old Grand-Dad’s Furnace

1 ½ oz. bourbon (Apte uses Old Grand-Dad 80-proof)
5 oz. hot apple cider
1/8 oz Demerara syrup
1 clove
1 cinnamon stick
Glass: mug or punch

Combine all ingredients except the bourbon in a small saucepan over low heat until warmed through.  Pour into a mug and add the bourbon.
