This Warm Spiked Apple Cider Drink Recipe is Perfect for Fall

What are you serving this holiday season? I have the perfect fall drink recipe for you. This warm spiked apple cider drink recipe is seriously perfect with all the best fall flavors.

The goal of this drink is to taste like a bitter candied apple – so if you aren’t really into bitter combined with sweet flavors, this might not be for you. I personally love those combination of flavors. Plus, I just really love how a warm spiked apple cider tastes.

Plus, this drink is super easy to make. It starts with one of my favorite fall drinks – apple cider. The rest of the ingredients can be adapted to meet your taste preferences. If you don’t like sour, you could leave out the lemon juice and/or the bitters. If you like sweeter, you could add extra cider or even some brown sugar. The great thing about drink recipes is that you can adapt them to fit your taste preferences.

If you’re looking for a warm and inviting drink to serve your guests this holiday season, I highly suggest you try this warm spiked apple cider. It’s so yummy!
