Notes

Use whole spices. You can use a few dashes of powered spices, but they will compromise the texture of the drink and make it gritty.

This takes only about 15 minutes to prepare, so make it just before you plan to serve. However, you can make it, refrigerate it, and heat it up again for later.

The ginger makes this cider extra warming, but if you want to spike it, do so with a shot of rum, whiskey, or bourbon.
