Forget your average hot cider and try this ultra creamy and slightly spicy one by mixologist Jeremy Hawn from New York City's famed Gotham Bar and Grill.
Note: Ginger syrup is equal parts fresh pressed ginger juice and simple syrup (made by boiling one cup of water with one cup of sugar). You can make your own ginger juice in a juicer, or buy a bottle of it from The Ginger People.
- 2 cups organic cider
- 1/2 cup aged rum like Mount Gay 1703 Rum
- 1/2 cup Irish whiskey
- 2 ounces ginger syrup
- 4 cinnamon sticks, plus more for garnish
In a small pot, add all of the ingredients and simmer for about 20 minutes until the cinnamon starts to soften and dissolve—that's when you'll know it's ready to be served. Serve garnished with a cinnamon stick.
