spiced pear cider

December 12th, 2008

It’s been a while since I’ve had a proper happy hour, but I think it was worth the wait. After we got our first snow here in Brooklyn, I thought it was the perfect time to heat up some cider. Pear cider just happened to be in the fridge so decided to spice it up with a little cinnamon and cloves… and rum of course. It was perfectly delicious and really hit the spot on a cold winter evening.

Have a great weekend!

Spiced Pear Cider
serves 2

2 cups pear cider
1 Tablespoon whole cloves
3 cinnamon sticks

Break one cinnamon stick in half and place it, along with the cloves, in a tea diffuser.
Put the diffuser and cider in a tea pot and heat over medium heat for about five minutes.
When the cider is nice and warm, pour it in two glasses. Add a shot of rum to each and garnish with a cinnamon stick.
Put on a nice movie (may I suggest Love Actually) and sit back and sip your cider.

    I had spiced apple cider for Thanksgiving. We spiced it with white wine. Next time I’ll have to consider using pear.
