Red Hot Cinnamon Apple Cider - Pink Saturday



From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...I wanted to feature a fall holiday drink that can be enjoyed by children and adults who do not use alcohol. This one is very easy to do and only a witch's brew could be more seasonally appropriate. The drink has two ingredients: really good apple cider and cinnamon red hot candies. The two are heated together until the candies melt. That's all there is to it. This is tastiest when served warm.

Red Hot Cinnamon Apple Cider...from the kitchen of One Perfect Bite

Ingredients:
1 quart apple cider
1/4 cup cinnamon red hot candies

Directions:
Place apple cider and cinnamon candies in a large sauce pan. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring constantly, until candies have melted. Serve warm. Yield: 4 servings.

Looks like bit like a bloody mary! But how hot is it, too hot for the kids?

Chele said...

Great colour and I like that there are only two ingredients and a bit of heating and stirring involved ;0)

Jeannie said...

Lovely colour and sure sounds like a great tasting drink.

You say about no alcohol, but I have never seen cider without a alcohol content of generally between 5% to 7%. It is one of my favourite drinks :-) Diane

I have to tell this story here! My mother in law always made her "wassail" this way with red hots. We always had it for Thanksgiving. AND we always had chicken and dumplings! One year, she had the cider in one pot and the chicken broth in another pot on the stove, heating up...guess which pot the red hots went into? lol She fished them out of the chicken broth as soon as she realized what she'd done...but needless to say we had "pink" dumplings that year! Thanks for the reminder of that memory!

This sounds good - had some cider yesterday with mulling spices at an open house but this sounds good for a change up!

Y. U. M! I can't wait to make this, and it's so easy!!!! Thanks for the post.

I've been really scarce lately-I'm doing the NaNoWriMo thing and I'm down to one visit to blogs a week and only two posts.

I hope your trip was wonderful!

What a fun holiday drink - so festive with that bright red color and I bet kids would like helping to make it to since candy is involved!

Cinnamon red hot candy is new. I had to google to find out what it was =P

Lea Ann said...

Beautiful color, it looks like my favorite red hot candy I loved as a kid.

Maison Mutt said...

Yummmie!!! It reminds me of candy apples I used to have as a kid at Knott's Berry Farm. Thanks for the memory.

JEANNE said...

Hello Mary, I have missed so many of your posts but I am back to visiting after some very busy days with lots going on. My sisters who live near me are always complaining I am never home or I have company. It is so true. However, I will not stop blogging so expect an unexpected visit from me when I can. Big smile.

I am very glad I stopped by today. The cider sounds like a great drink for a trim the tree party. Plus it is just too easy. I am loving it!!!

Hope all is well with you Mary.
Warm hugs, Jeanne

Donnie said...

Happy Pink Saturday. Thanks for sharing your beautiful recipe.

Sounds much better than a witch's brew to me!

This reminds me of fall afternoons in the US when I was younger--sounds like a wonderful drink, Mary!

Hi Mary! As you know from my latest post, I'm featuring red stuff from round the world on my blog. I saw the title to this recipe and wondered if you'd be interested in sharing a red recipe or two for my readers? It'd be a different take on RED - everyone's expecting another set of travel pictures to be next! Let me know if you're interested at red[dot]nomad[dot]oz[at]gmail[dot]com!!
