Spiced Apple Pie Cocktail

I shared this on Frugal Front Porch yesterday. I thought I'd share it here too since the holidays are quickly approaching and some of you may be looking for a new cocktail to serve at a dinner or party.

This is the perfect drink to keep you warm during this cold holiday season. Spiced Apple Pie Cocktail. Yummy and delicious. It is best served warm but you could chill it or even kiddie-proof it by adding a bit of ginger ale! You can even turn this into tea if that's more your style.

1 red apple - cored and chopped or pureed
1 green apple - cored and chopped or pureed
1 nub ginger root - sliced thin
3/4 c white granulated sugar
2 tbs brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
dash nutmeg
4 c water
Southern Comfort or other preferred rum - optional

Cook top 8 ingredients in a saucepan on medium heat till all the sugars are melted, the apples have softened and the mixture is nice and bubbly. Approximately 10 minutes. Turn off heat and allow mixture to steep and additional 5 to 10 minutes. Turn this into a tea by adding another two cups of hot water and an orange pekoe tea bag at this time. Pour mixture through strainer or cheese cloth to remove apples and ginger and serve with a shot of rum or whiskey.

Makes approximately four 1 cup servings.
