Spiked cider

Does anyone know of a good spiked cider recipe? Is this even a thing? Preferably cold, like a punch.

I think (space permitting) that this would be a really fun 'be your own bartender' opportunity. Assemble an assortment of spirits (bourbon, scotch, cinnamon schnapps, St. Germain, Calvados, vodka) and some simple ingredients (lemons, oranges, brandied cherries, bitters) and let each individual go to town!

Alternately, you could probably try a variation on the Sidewalker concept - Hefeweizen, lemon, maple syrup, apple, soda.

Here's Bon Appetit's version as a possible starting point (swapping in the cider and adjusting the soda, maple syrup, etc)

This was a huge hit at our wedding (and at many parties after):

4 oz. cider
1 oz. bourbon
1/4 oz. St. Germain liqueur
squeeze of lime
serve over ice

Easy to mix in small or big batches. Enjoy!

If you can find babysham.... It is a light pear cider would work nicely with you're Apple cider

I know some crazy kids who mixed equal parts white wine and apple cider and claimed it the most delicious beverage ever.

Are you thinking of adding alcohol to apple juice (aka cider) or making a punch with already-fermented cider?
In any case, this recipe uses both:
