  3. Once boiling immediately reduce to a simmer for at least 1 hour, but up to 4 for maximum spice strength.

BOOZY TWIST - add in 2-4c of your favorite fortified wine


  1. Pour 1 pint of heavy whipping cream into a mixing bowl

  2. Whisk Or Use a mixer until the cream starts to thicken and create soft, cloud-like peaks

Once the whip is nice and fluffy, top this incredible cider with the whip, cinnamon, nutmeg, a cinnamon stick, and a star anise - grab your favorite blanket, light a candle (more for ambiance than anything since your house now smells like this amazing cider), and enjoy the changing of the seasons.
