- 1/2 gallon apple cider
- 1 Granny Smith apple, diced
- Peel of 1 orange, torn into pieces
- 3 cinnamon sticks
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup bourbon
Step 1: Pour the cider into a large pot and set over medium-high heat. Add the apple, orange peel, and cinnamon sticks. Add the sugar and stir it around to dissolve. Bring to a low boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Step 2: Add the bourbon and simmer for another 10 to 15 minutes. Ladle into mugs and serve warm.
