O.M.G. Cider

Here is a good one for the basic in all of us. Apple cider – Carmel syrup – pumpkin pie spice – cinnamon sticks no cooking needed. Just add all the ingredients into a big dispensing jar or container and then serve! What’s really fun with this one though being able to add and little whiskey and amaretto!

So tasty so good.


(To fit a 2-gallon drink dispenser)

• 2 Gallons Apple Cider

• 1 -12.2 oz. bottle caramel syrup

• 1 Tbsp. Pumpkin Pie Spice

• 1/2 liter amaretto

• 1 liter of whiskey

Spiked and Spiced apple cider

Spiked and Spiced Apple Cider

prep time – 5 mins

cook time – 2 hours

Using apple cider you cook it with maple syrup, red wine, cinnamon, lemons and oranges. Lemons and oranges in wheels for a more attractive garnish and so people can drink around them. The one thing that always gets me is trying to drink around all the small fruits floating around all the time! Put all ingredients in a crock pot and then put on low. Let it simmer and cook for a good 2 hour to get all the cinnamon flavors out!

If its just adults you can add a liter of whiskey of your choice to the end after is is all finished!


  • 1 gallon apple cider

  • 2 Cinnamon sticks

  • 1 cup red wine

  • 4 oranges, use 2 in the cider and 2 for garnishes

  • 4 lemons, use 2 in the cider and 2 for garnishes

  • 1 liter of whiskey – bourbon, scotch, Irish, any really!

Peach Brandy

This is a delightful mix to make and keep for ice cream drinks or just to drink alone. 

It takes a full 7 days to get all of the peach flavor to transfer over!

  • 1 lb fresh peaches or frozen if they are not in season. 
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 liter bottle of brandy
  • 1 vanilla bean

Here is what I do:

  1. Take a pound of fresh peaches  and cut them into 1 inch chunks.  I use frozen all the time, so if that is all you have you are ok. 
  2. Take the peaches and 2 cups of sugar and put them in a medium sauce pan  and stir!   No need for heat just yet.  Let them sit at room temp and extract the juices
  3. Stir in 2 ups of brandy and bring to a boil. Quickly reduce the heat and simmer until the peaches have lost their color!  Somewhere between 13-17 minutes
  4. Split the vanilla bean in half and add it to the pot of the heat!  Let it sit until it cools.  
  5. Add in the remaining brandy and stir.  Pouring into a pitcher that is tight fitted or a jar that will hold everything sealed. 
  6. After 7 days  – strain mixture through a fine mesh strainer. Save the drunken peaches. You can use them later for either garnishes or just on icecream!!
  7. I would say it would last around a month or two.  Before you have to question it.  Then again if it lasts more than a month. Your doing it wrong 😂😂

Let’s Drink!
