Harvest Cider Jack

Recipe: Jean Heimann


  • 1 750 ml bottle of French Cider
  • ½ cup Apple Jack Brandy
  • 1 Lemon, halved with one half thinly sliced
  • 1 Cinnamon Stick
  • ½ Star Anise
  • 1 Tbs. Honey
  • LifeSpice Harvest Cider Doughnut Seasoning


  1. Bring the Apple Jack, honey, cinnamon stick and star anise to a simmer. Do so slowly and carefully, the Apple Jack is flammable!
  2. Turn off heat and let steep for 15 to 20 minutes.
  3. In a large pitcher add the juice of half a lemon, the steeped Apple Jack, and the French cider.
  4. Dredge the lemon slices in the Harvest Cider Doughnut seasoning, and float the lemon slices in the drink. Taste and add more honey if you’d like a sweet drink.
  5. Rim a glass with a little honey and the Harvest Cider Donut seasoning, and serve over ice if desired.
