Cider Orange Bourbon Chiller

Posted Dec 11 2012 7:55am

This is normally the time of year when I start breaking out hot drinks.

Hot cider. Hot chocolate. Hot tea. Hot cocktails. Hot everything.

But our last week has not felt like December at all – we had temps in the 60s all weekend. Where are you winter?


I’m fine with having a stretch of nicer weather, but it throws me off when I’m trying to plan winter meals and drinks. I mean, hot soup isn’t the best option when the weather is nice enough that you’re literally flying a kite outside in a t-shirt.

The only reason I want winter back is because I have a ton of apple cider to use, and I want it hot! And for that to happen, I need to be freezing. See, I’m strange when it comes to drink temperatures. Most of the year, I want things room temperature – unless I am dying of heat or just finished a crazy hard workout (which, let’s be honest, neither of those happens very often). I like my water closer to room temp than ice cold, and I almost never use ice in my drinks.

But besides coffee in the morning, I only like hot drinks if I am super cold and seriously need something hot to warm myself back up. I’m a weird one. I know.

So drink this iced. Make it hot. It doesn’t matter how you have it – just make it.
