WE LOVE FALL: Pumpkin Spiced Cider

Living in NY, a city that actually has seasons, I have learned to embrace and enjoy them. This year, we are really into Fall. Pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin pancakes, and pumpkin curry are all on the menu. This recipe comes just in time for Halloween. If you are getting together with friends tomorrow night try making a hot pot of

INGREDIENTS (makes 1 cup)
4 oz apple cider
1 oz simple syrup
1 oz pumpkin puree
1 cinnamon stick
1 clove
2 oz Irish Whiskey
Dash fresh ground nutmeg
Cinnamon stick (garnish)

Pour cider into pot and add all ingredients.
Bring to a simmer and steep for 30 minutes.
Pass through a china cap and chill (if served cold).
Add simple syrup to taste.
Finish with Powers Irish Whiskey.
Serve in a short old fashioned over rocks with cinnamon stick garnish.
Wonderful served hot but also great on ice.
