This spiced (and spiked!) cider from Diana Yen of the Jewels of New York is a cool version of a fall favorite. Serve it up at a seasonal soirée — or in the kitchen while the turkey’s roasting in the oven…

Spiced Bourbon Cider

serves 10

    5 cups apple cider
    2½ cups Bourbon
    ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
    ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
    1 knob of ginger (about 2 inches), sliced
    2 cinnamon sticks
    2½ cups ice, plus more for serving
    5 tablespoons maple syrup
    bitters (optional)
  1. In a saucepan, combine apple cider, cloves, nutmeg, ginger and cinnamon sticks. Bring to a boil, then cover and remove from heat. Let the cider steep at room temperature for 1 hour.
  2. Strain the cider into a container and place in the refrigerator to chill.
  3. To make two cocktails at a time in a cocktail shaker or a pint glass: add ½ cup ice, ½ cup bourbon, 1 cup cider, and 1 tablespoon maple syrup. Shake well.
  4. Using a cocktail strainer or small sieve, strain the liquid over ice into your favorite drinking glass.
  5. Finish each glass with a dash of your favorite bitters.
