Mulled Apple Hots

Ok, so I KNOW that “hots” isn’t technically a noun.. but I didn’t want to call them hotties because it made me laugh/cringe everytime I thought it. And also.. can I just add – NOUN SCHMOUN! These are a nice alternative to mulled wine for the kids or non-drinkers. I know people think of apple as an autumn thing, but it goes so well with ingredients like cloves and cinnamon, that I thought I would go with it.

If you hate mulled wine (…how!?!?), but you want to make this into a tasty alcoholic beverage you can also add vodka or cointreau when heating the apple juice to give it that bite! Sorry that this is such a short post. My head is crammed with christmas thoughts like presents and partying…. and not much space for blog post thinking.
