(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Q: A friend is throwing an autumn party full of wonderful treats and drinks. My contribution is to be a boozy hot apple cider. However, none of the recipes I can find really tickle my fancy.

Any tried and true recipes?

Editor: Adrienne, here are a few recipes from our archives. Maybe one of these will spark something?

Spiced Apple Cider – Basic, with a cup of rum optional
Hot Buttered Bourbon and Cider – Butter makes everything better!
Simple Cocktails with Fresh Apple Cider – Great roundup of cider cocktails from Nora; we especially like the Northern Spy, which includes lemon juice and apricot brandy.

Whatever you do, we love the serving idea from Martha Stewart, pictured above. Serve in a big punch bowl with lady apples studded with cloves.

Readers, any favorite boozy apple cider recipes?
