Kick off the holiday festivities right with this spicy Mexican cider. It's packing some heat from guajillo chiles, enough to make one shout “Órale!”

Ingredients

  • 2 cloves
  • 4 1/2 cups apple cider
  • 2 guajillo chiles, stemmed, seeded, and chopped
  • 1 cup water
  • 5 cinnamon sticks
  • 5 slices orange
  • 7 1/2 ounces tequila

Directions

Add the clove, apple cider, guajillo chiles, water, and 1 cinnamon stick to a pot and bring to a boil over high heat. Lower heat to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes. Remove from heat.
