Pecan Bourbon Apple Cider
Ever craved a pecan pie in a glass? Well we did, too. We're dusting off this excellent cold-weather drink recipe because the weather outside is getting a bit nippy.
This recipe involves a little pre-planning, so let's get started.
Spread your pecan halves across a cookie sheet, then lightly toast in a 250 degree fahrenheit oven. This shouldn't take long, so don't get too distracted around the house. When the pecans have cooled, throw them in the bottom of a mason jar and drown them a bottle of your favorite bourbon. Seal the lid and let the whole shebang infuse in a cool dark place for 5 - 7 days.
Grab your favorite apple cider and pour it in a crockpot or large saucepan with a lid with vanilla beans and cinnamon sticks. Simmer the deliciousness for 3 or 4 hours.
Got your pecan-infused bourbon ready? Good. Here's the recipe:
- 2 oz pecan-infused bourbon
- mulled cider, warm
- whipped cream, for garnish
Pour pecan-infused bourbon into a mason jar, then fill with warm mulled cider. Garnish with a generous dollop of whipped cream (a pecan pie isn't a pecan pie without whipped cream!).
And there you have it. Whether you're coming off the slopes or cozying in for binge-watching your favorite Netflix shows, this pecan bourbon apple cider is sure to keep you warm and toasty.
