This History Of Cider

Few drinks are as delicious or versatile as cider. This tart, refreshing beverage can be enjoyed on its own or used as a mixer in a wide variety of cocktails.

The first recorded mention of cider dates back to 55 BC, when Julius Caesar noted that the British were drinking a fermented drink made from apples. In the centuries that followed, cider became increasingly popular in Europe, particularly in France and England.

By the middle of the 17th century, cider was so commonplace in England that it was being drunk by people of all social classes, from peasants to nobility.

In America, cider was also an important part of colonial life. George Washington was a known fan of the drink, and farmers often used it as currency to trade for goods and services. Today, cider is enjoyed by people all over the world and is sure to continue to be popular for many years to come.

Mr. Black Cold Brew Coffee Liqueur is made with 100% Arabica coffee beans sourced from Ethiopia. The coffee is roasted and brewed before being combined with Australian wheat Vodka, resulting in a smooth and well-balanced drink.

Recommended Cider Brands

As the weather gets cooler, there's nothing better than cozying up with a warm drink in hand. If you're looking for a fall-themed beverage that's both delicious and festive, look no further than spiked apple cider. Cider is a type of apple juice that has been fermented, and it comes in a variety of flavors. Whether you like your spiced apple cider sweet or dry, there's sure to be a brand that suits your taste. Here are three recommended cider brands:

Woodchuck Cider

Woodchuck Cider is one of the most popular cider brands on the market. It offers a wide range of flavors, from the traditional Granny Smith to the more unique Pearsecco. Woodchuck also offers seasonal flavors, so be sure to try the pumpkin spice cider in the fall!

Angry Orchard

Angry Orchard is another well-known cider brand. Unlike Woodchuck, Angry Orchard only offers a few flavors, but each one is expertly crafted. The crisp apple flavor is perfect for fall, and the Rosemary Maple is ideal for winter sipping.

Sam Adams

While Sam Adams is better known for their beer, they also make an excellent cider. The Boston Lager Cider is perfect for fans of traditional apple cider, while the Winter Lentil Spice Cider is a great choice for those looking for something a little different. No matter what your taste, Sam Adams has a cider that will suit you.

Recommended Spiced Rum Brands

While rum is often associated with pirates and tropical beaches, the truth is that this versatile spirit can be used in a wide variety of cocktails. Whether you're looking for a smooth sipper or a mixable rum, there are plenty of great options to choose from. When it comes to spiced rum, however, there are three brands that really stand out.

Captain Morgan

First on the list is Captain Morgan Spiced Rum. This popular rum is made with a blend of spices including nutmeg, cloves, and cinnamon. The result is a well-balanced rum with just the right amount of sweetness. It's perfect on its own or in cocktails like the Hurricane or the Painkiller.

Sailor Jerry

Next up is Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum. This rum gets its unique flavor from the addition of vanilla and lime peel. It's also made with a higher proof than most other rums, which gives it a bit more of a kick. Whether you're sipping it neat or mixing it into your favorite cocktail, Sailor Jerry is sure to please.

Mt. Gay

Last but not least is Mt. Gay Eclipse Silver Rum. This premium rum is made with only the finest Trinidad and Tobago molasses. It's then aged in oak barrels before being blended with spices like vanillin and mace. The result is a smooth, drinkable rum with hints of vanilla, caramel, and spice. If you're looking for a top-notch spiced rum, Mt. Gay Eclipse Silver should definitely be at the top of your list.

What To Pair With Your Hot Apple Cider Cocktail

There's nothing quite like a mug of Hot Mulled Cider to warm you up on a chilly autumn day. The combination of sweet apples and warming spices is irresistible, and it's the perfect drink to enjoy with friends or family. But what should you pair with your cider? Here are a few suggestions:

Caramel Apple

For a traditional apple flavor, try pairing your cider with a caramel apple. The sweetness of the caramel will complement the tartness of the cider, and the crunch of the apple will add an enjoyable textural contrast.

Apple Pie

If you're in the mood for something a little more indulgent, try pairing your cider with a slice of apple pie. The rich filling and flaky crust will make for a perfect match with the warm cider. Just be sure to avoid using too much sugar in your pie crust, as it can quickly overwhelm the delicate flavors of the cider.

Roasted Pork Loin

If you're looking for something more savory, try pairing your apple cider recipe with roasted pork loin. The richness of the pork will be cut by the acidity of the cider, and the spice of the Mulling spices will bring out the best in both dishes. Just be sure not to overcook your pork, as it can quickly become dry when paired with such a strong drink.

Whatever you choose to pair with your hot mulled cider, make sure to enjoy it with good company and relax into the comfort of fall.


Now that you know the recipe for the perfect hot mulled cider, it's time to put them all together and enjoy a delicious cup! The best part of this recipe is that it's easily adjustable to your own tastes. The possibilities are endless, so get creative and make this cider your own.
