Do you have a favorite Apple Cider recipe?

As we get closer to fall, there’s nothing better than a warm, spiced drink while visiting the lake.

Since our properties offer full kitchens, you can make some hot apple cider for those long chats by the camp fire.

Do you have a favorite recipe? If so, post the ingredients in the comments!

Here’s a recipe from Emeril Lagasse — Hot Apple Cider with Rum


  • 1 apple
  • 2 teaspoons whole cloves
  • 1 orange, thinly sliced
  • 2 quarts apple cider
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon allspice
  • Pinch grated nutmeg
  • 1 cup dark rum
  • Cinnamon sticks, garnish


Stud the apple with the cloves. In a medium pot, combine the studded apple and remaining ingredients except the rum. Slowly bring to a simmer over low heat. Simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and add the rum. Discard the apple. Ladle into mugs and garnish each with a cinnamon stick. Serve immediately.
