30 Second cranberry-carmel apple cider cocktail

Alright, so this is not a very fancy recipe and yes, it probably takes more than 30 seconds. But it is a super quick, cheap, and tasty cocktail that will warm you up in a hurry! This recipe is for one, but the mixture could be made in bigger batches; the ratios are pretty easy to calculate.

I put this together a while ago and never shared it, and thought with summer coming I wouldn’t bother. But guess what? In Calgary today, it was sideways rain and snow this morning so I might just make something to warm me up when I get home!


3/4 cup apple juice
1/4 cup cranberry juice
1 tsp sugar
1/8 tsp cinnamon
5 fresh or frozen cranberries
1 oz. butterscotch schnapps

1) Combine first five ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a boil.
2) Stir until sugar has dissolved.
3) Add schnapps to a mug and pour hot apple juice mixture over top.

Voila! Was that easy or what?
