Spiked Apple Cider Cocktail


  • 2 quarts apple cider
  • 4 cinnamon sticks
  • 4 whole cloves
  • 1 small piece of fresh ginger
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 lemons, juiced
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, washed, cored, skin-on and cut into thin sticks
  • 1 bottle dry Cava or Prosecco, chilled


In a medium-size pot combine the cider, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, sugar, and lemon juice. Stir to blend and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until reduced by half. Cool. Pour into a bowl and refrigerate. 

When ready to serve pour the cider halfway up champagne flutes, add one or two apple sticks, and top with Cava.
