Whenever there is a special celebration, drinks and food will always be part of the festivities. Thanksgiving is definitely not exempt from this. Friends and family get together to enjoy each other’s company and share good food and great drinks. Though coffee is not the default drink for Thanksgiving, it is always a perfect drink after a good meal. Here is one recipe that I am all excited about. I have never ever tried coffee and apple cider together but I like them separately so the combination should work out well.
Here’s the recipe I found at Recipe Gold Mine.
Harvest Coffee Cider
1/4 cup ground Maxwell House Coffee, any variety
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup apple juice or cider
3 cups cold water
1. Place coffee in filter in brew basket of coffee maker; sprinkle with cinnamon.
2. Place sugar and apple juice in empty pot of coffee maker.
3. Add water to coffee maker; brew.
4. When brewing is complete, stir until well blended.
Makes 4 servings.
Substitute honey for the brown sugar.

This recipe looks easy enough to follow. One thing, though, I do not really use Maxwell House coffee so I probably would not use it for the recipe. I don’t think it would matter, do you?
