Scotch Apple Cider is Hot, Smoky
Chow has really been wowing us lately with some of their recipes - we posted about their DIY Amaretto a while back, and now they're hitting us with a recipe for "smoky" scotch apple cider. We will be mixing up some of these ASAP, you'd better believe it.
1/2 cup apple cider
1 teaspoon honey
1 (3-inch) cinnamon stick
1 (1-by-2-inch) lemon peel
2 tablespoons single-malt, not-heavily-peated Scotch whisky, such as Glenlivet
1/4 teaspoon heavily peated Scotch whisky, such as Laphroaig
1 1/2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
Heat apple cider, honey, cinnamon stick, and lemon peel in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring until the honey has melted and the cinnamon is fragrant, about 3 minutes.
Turn off the heat, add both Scotches and the lemon juice, and stir to combine. Transfer to a heatproof glass and garnish with the cinnamon stick and lemon peel.
