Fire Cider

If you have ever heard the song “I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas,” you will appreciate why I am considering booze at noon.

Fireball. Now with slightly more class & less judgment.

Of all the adult beverages we have here at Nummy, this one is the simplest and most seasonal.

Even better – It’s the fastest way to get Fireball into your system since Matt Hinson moved back to Memphis.
——
1/2 gallon apple cider
1 orange
12 cloves
4 cinnamon  sticks
1 star anise (optional)
Fireball to taste
————–
  1. Stud your orange with cloves (i.e. jam cloves into the outside of an orange).
  2. Simmer all ingredients except Fireball for 30 minutes. (Reminder: Star anise tastes like liquorice, so if you Hate Licorice like I do, skip it.)
  3. Strain and add desired amount of Fireball. Serving suggestions per mug are as follows:
    1. One splash for fuzzy memories
    2. One shot for slightly sloppy
    3. Two shots for telling your sister what you really think of her boyfriend
  4. Garnish each mug with a cinnamon stick and a slice of orange peel.
