I used Evan Williams but you can use whatever whiskey you want. I just picked something at a middle of the road price, I didnt want the cheap stuff and didn’t need top shelf either. This recipe is a bit more stiff but sweet, good for a sipper over ice or some fun holiday shots.

Ingredients & Supplies
1 Liter Bottle of Whiskey
1/2 Gallon of Apple Cider
(You could use a gallon of cider, double the ingredients or not)
Few Sprinkles of Nutmeg
10 Caramel Candies
6 Pint Size Mason Jars/ 12 If You Use a Gallon of Cider
Twine & Card Stock
Fill your pot with the cider, cloves, brown sugar, cinnamon sticks and nutmeg. Heat until warm and start adding your caramels. Heat until caramel is melted. I simmered for about 45 minutes and kept stirring.
I picked out the cloves and cinnamon sticks when I was done cooking. Now let your caramel apple mix cool.
I want to note… use real caramel candies you usually find in the bulk candy. Werthers and other caramel candies don’t melt properly, it separates and you’ll have chunks of I dont know what floating at the surface. I had to strain it… Lesson learned first time I made this! LOL.
Now that your caramel apple mix is cool add your whiskey and then add to your mason jars. I use a canning funnel like this to fill my jars.

Here we are all filled tagged and ready to gift! I include the download for the tags. Hence twine and card stock on the list.
Ready to make some? It easy, quick and not so bad on the wallet making 6-12 gifts. Like I posted in the ingredient list you could use a gallon, it will be just as yummy but not as strong.
If you make some come share or if you tweaked the recipe come share that too! 🙂 Have you made some sort of adult beverage for gifts? What did you make?
