Merry Making Peach and Apricot Hot Cider

Remember back during the oh so fun time of the Merry Maker achievements, and you had to make hot apple cider? It sounded oh so good. Well, now you can do just that. Only In Real Life.

This recipe will call for a few things you might not have around the house. So you might need to make a trip to the grocery store to farm the mats up. And you will need a slow cooker (Crocpot).

Plus this recipe could easily be turned into a "hard apple cider" for the over level 21 peeps out there.

2 Cups Peach Nectar
2 Cups Apricot Nectar
1 bag of frozen peach slices (or you could use fresh peaches if there available)
3 cups water
1/2 cup lemon juice
1 cup brown sugar
about a tsp. allspice - give or take.
2-4 cinnamon sticks, for serving as well.

* Now for the over 21* You could use some bourbon in this, or whatever else you want to spike your cider with. I would suggest using about a cup. But add more or even take some away to fulfill you own alcohol needs.*

Now there is really only one step to this. You will want to take all of the above ingredients and stir them together in your slow cooker. Once you're finished with that, you simply cover and cook it on low for 2-3 hours.

After the 3 hours, remove the cinnamon sticks, and then switch your cooker over to warm for serving.

*Another suggestion* Use the cinnamon sticks you cooked with in your cider. Gives it a little extra flavor.*

And there you have it. Your very own Merry Making, hot peach, and apricot Cider. A cider to make even the Copperpinch sellers jealous.
