Hot Spiked Cider/Caramel Apples Drink Recipe

Today I have two recipes for you in one! A lot of you have been asking me for the recipe for my Warm Spiked Apple Cider that was featured in my Ugly Sweater Friendsmas Party blog so here it is! Plus (just because I love you ladies) I'm adding in my super easy recipe for Caramel Apple Shots! 

Warm (Spiked) Apple Cider

What You Need:
1 Four Quart Crockpot 
1/2 Gallon of Apple Cider (I bought a whole gallon and saved what wasn't used for the recipe for the non-drinkers at the party)
3 Cups Of Spiced Rum (I used Captain Morgan's Original Spiced)
1 Green Apple
1 Stick of Cinnamon (Optional)

How To Do It:
About an hour before your party starts: Pour half a gallon of apple cider into the crockpot. Add 3 cups of spiced rum (you can add more depending on taste but you shouldn't need more than 3). Stir. Add a stick of fresh cinnamon to the bottom (optional) and turn your crockpot onto high and cover. While your crockpot is heating up, it's time to prep your green apple. Cut off the top and the bottom to throw away then cut the rest into thin slices (about 3/8 of an inch thick). Core the apples OR if you'd like to make it fun like I did, cut out fun shapes in the center of the apples such as leafs, pumpkins, hearts, stars, Christmas trees, snowflakes, and letters! Use your awesome female imagination! Add the apples to the top of your cider and cover.
10-15 minutes before your guests arrive turn your crockpot to warm and cover again so the heat stays in but isn't too hot to drink. Once the guests arrive you can take of the lid if you'd like so the guests can see your fancy apples, and don't forget to provide a ladle for them to get the cider out! Drunk people dipping their glasses into the crockpot can get VERY messy. lol

Easiest Ever Caramel Apple Shots
(You can make this as a shot or a drink but it's very sweet so I think shots work best)

What You Need:
Spiked Apple Cider (See Above Recipie)
Butterscotch Schnapps (aka: Buttershots)

How To Do It:
1.) Fill up half a shot glass with spiked apple cider. 
2.) Fill up the rest of the shot glass with Butterscotch Schnapps. 
3.) Drink it and be amazed at how it really does taste just like a caramel apple.
Become totally smashed! :D
