Let me know if you try them.





He's talking about using real cider to make an alcoholic drink which is 100x better than a hard cider "beer." Not even remotely similar.
We are trying both. It's for my wife's birthday party in October. She likes cocktails and apple cider. I was looking on line for some recipes - but I don't know what will taste good. It's easier to ask other mixology inclined people.

I was not seeking a hard cider or a flavored beer. You have that right. I want to use local apple cider and whiskey.

What I plan to do is to try them both on her first. That sounds bad. Anyway, see which she prefers.

We will be having a signature cocktail, craft beer and local wine. And lots of Fall food.

It's always a hit and takes care of drinkers, light drinkers, and non-drinkers all in one. You could pre-mix the liquor of your choice into the hot-mulled cider if you wanted some consistency and the "strong" drink that you're after.

We also make an apple cider-based margarita that's kind of special.
tequila - 2oz
apple cider - 1 1/2 oz
juice of 1 medium sized lime (not quite 1oz juice)
honey (or simple syrup, agave, sugar...) to sweeten
touch of cinnamon

Mix in a shaker of ice and pour over ice into a glass that's rimmed with salt, sugar, and cinnamon. Garnish with a cinnamon stick and/or star anise pod. Very festive, potent, sophisticated, and tastes great.
Another contender! Thanks for posting.

Look up a recipe for Apple Pie. Drinkable and strong. Uses cider, too. I'm guarded about my recipe, but others may share theirs.

My family makes apple cidercars for Thanksgiving.

Apple Cidercar | Williams-Sonoma

It calls for apple cider concentrate, but we just use apple cider and leave out the water.
