Catoctin Creek Distilling Co. is back with some new recipes for some exceptional cold-weather cocktails to combat the cold. Today we get a look at one known as Mulled Hot Rye Cider.

½ gallon of apple cider
2 satsuma oranges
1 honey crisp apple
3 cinnamon sticks
Catoctin Creek Roundstone Rye whisky
Thinly slice the oranges and apple horizontally. Pour the cider into a large pot and add the slices of fruit, the cinnamon sticks, and cloves. Bring to a boil over high heat, lower the heat, and let the mixture simmer for about 30 minutes until it is fragrant. Fill up mugs about three-quarters full and add about an ounce of rye whiskey to each mug. Garnish with an apple or orange slice, half a cinnamon stick, and cloves.
