Mulled cider is one of my favorite fall drinks, but sometimes it can get a little too sweet. However, adding a few dashes of bitters can cut through that sweetness and a little unexpected pop. Our Dead Guy Chicory Bitters adds a toasty, richness that I'm loving these days.
8 oz apple cider
2 cinnamon sticks
1 Tbsp whole allspice
4-6 dashes The Bitter Housewife Dead Guy Chicory Bitters
In a small saucepan bring the apple cider with the cinnamon and allspice to a bare simmer. Cook for 10 minutes. Strain into your favorite mug and add a bitters.
If you want a little extra kick, add a shot of whiskey or rum.
