If you want a little twist, you can keep the Everclear out and then mix in either whipped cream vodka or choose to set sail with Captain Morgan (my personal fave next to the Everclear) on a cup by cup basis.
Same stuff, but I usually make this on the stove in a 6-quart pot. A few variations:
1/2 gallon apple cider
1 gallon apple juice
1 cup of sugar
6-8 cinnamon sticks
Cook on the stove for 2 hours at barely a summer.
Add a bottle of Everclear and cool as quickly as possible (in the winter, we set the pot out in the snow).
I enjoy it over ice and haven't ever had it warm- but we've long said that heated in a crock pot would be nice.
Secondly, the Bullets really work as advertised. We have the "Baby Bullet" for making baby foods- it's pretty amazing what it'll wail through.
Finally, my drink of choice is Lemon Rum and Sprite. Some days it's rum-flavored Sprite and some days it's Sprite-flavored rum....
