Chef notes

Who needs candles? This big-batch cocktail will perfume your entire house with the smell of warm spices, sweet orange flavor and a hint of bourbon. The addition of amaretto liqueur adds a subtle almond note. Start this cocktail in the afternoon before your guests come and it will be the perfect crowd-pleaser to kick off the party.

Special equipment: Slow cooker, but you can also make this using a large pot on the stovetop over very low heat if you don't have one.


  • 1 quart apple cider
  • 1 cup bourbon
  • 1/2 cup amaretto liqueur
  • 4-6 cinnamon sticks
  • 2 cardamom pods, crushed lightly
  • 4 whole star anises
  • 2 whole cloves
  • 1 orange, sliced


Combine all ingredients in a slow cooker and leave on the low setting for 2 to 4 hours. Serve warm.
