People seem to like my pumpkin cocktail recipe listing, so here are some cocktails made with apples.

ZayaHotAppleCider Zaya’s Hot Rum Apple Cider

2 qts. Unsweetened Apple Cider
1 (6 oz.) Can Frozen Orange Juice Concentrate (thawed)
1/4 c. Lemon Juice

With a slotted spoon remove the Cinnamon Sticks, Cloves, Coriander and Nutmeg. Stir in Zaya Rum and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently until thoroughly heated.  Do not boil. Pour into mugs and garnish with Cinnamon sticks. 

And here are two from Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur.
