So I just love having some sort of specialty or signature drink available at a party, let it be a Halloween Party, book club or even a wedding.
If your ceremony is taking place outside in mid Oct - try offering this to your guests as they enter, it will keep them warm during your vows:
Spiced Apple Cider (16 cups)
32 whole allspice berries
24 cinnamon sticks
24 cardamom pods
12 whole cloves
12 strips of orange zest (about 3 oranges)
1 gallon apple cider
Combine all ingredients in a pot. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, and cook until fragrant, about 5 minutes. Cider can be kept warm over a low heat. Strain before serving, reserving cinnamon sticks for garnish.
