Our Favorite Slow-Cooker Cocktails
Recipe: Heartwarming Cider
Assemble this cider in your slow-cooker and enjoy the spicy smells as the cider heats. Add rum to make it a cocktail.
Recipe: Honey-Ginger Tea
This recipe is easy to scale up to a big batch. We like the sweetness of the honey against the bite of fresh ginger. A finger or two of bourbon or rye takes this restorative tea to the next level.
Recipe: Cinnamon-Orange Coffee
For an after-dinner drink that packs a punch, brew up a pot of cinnamon-orange coffee. Combine with coffee liqueur in your slow cooker. Accept praise for your cocktail prowess.
Rich ‘n’ Thick Hot Chocolate
Recipe: Rich ‘n’ Thick Hot Chocolate
Mix up a big batch of this in your slow-cooker. While we do say that the marshmallow whipped cream is optional, trust us: you want it. Upgrade to a boozy hot chocolate by stirring in some Southern Comfort.
Recipe: Apple-Ale Wassail
This twist on the English classic is practically made for the slow-cooker, as it needs a good three hours for the spices, cider, and ale flavors to marry. Ladle it out freely.
Spiced After-Dinner Coffee
Recipe: Spiced After-Dinner Coffee
Amaretto and whipped cream take this coffee confection to swoon-worthy heights. Garnish with orange rind and a sprinkle of cinnamon for an elegant finish.
Orange Spiced Cider
Recipe: Orange Spiced Cider
Citrus and dark rum make this cider a heady brew for a chilly night. Leave out the rum if you’ve got little ones, and simply swirl it in as you ladle out the cider for the grown-ups.
