NOLET’S Silver
Holiday Hot Apple Cider

For warming up holiday visitors, this Hot Apple Cider can (and should) be made to self-serve. Because the NOLET’S Silver is added in at the end, the strength of the cocktail can be adjusted by preference. This recipe makes enough cider for approximately 10-12 servings.

1.5 oz. NOLET’S Silver Gin per serving
1/2 Gallon Apple Cider
3 cups Unsweetened Cranberry Juice
1 sliced Orange
1 sliced Lemon
1 sliced Apple
4 Cinnamon Sticks
4 Cardamom Pods
3 Star Anise Pods
1/2 tsp. Grated Nutmeg
2 inches sliced Ginger

Combine all ingredients (except Gin) in a slow cooker or large pot on the stove. Bring to a simmer and reduce heat to lowest setting/lowest flame. Can be kept warm for hours and will provide a wonderful holiday fragrance.

To serve, ladle punch into a mug or teacup with 1.5 oz. of NOLET’S Silver Gin, and garnish with fruit slices, cranberries, cinnamon, or star anise.
