Molasses-Spiced Spiked Cider
If you’ve ever wondered what fall would taste like in a glass, then here’s your answer. Molasses adds dark-sweet undertones to apple cider, and fresh ginger adds a spicy heat. You might see molasses labeled “unsulphured” or “blackstrap” at the grocery store. Either will work well here, but blackstrap tends to be more bitter. Rum is a perfect pairing since it’s made from sugarcane—just like molasses. Adding the rum at the end ensures the alcohol doesn’t burn off during cooking.
