  • 1 gallon apple cider
  • 12 cups cinnamon-flavored spirit (to taste (such as Fireball Cinnamon Whisky, Goldschlager Cinnamon Schnapps or Jim Beam Kentucky Fire Whisky))
  • 1 cup whipped cream
  • Cinnamon sticks


  1. Combine apple cider and cinnamon-flavored spirit of choice in a slow cooker and heat until liquid is warmed through but not boiling. (Note that this step can also be performed in a Dutch oven on the cooktop.)
  2. When ready to serve, ladle 1-2 cups punch into a heat-resistant mug and top with whipped cream. Grate some cinnamon onto the drink and add a cinnamon stick for a fun and festive twist.


Have some fun! Play around with this recipe and try other flavor combinations (such as hard apple cider and vanilla vodka steeped with cinnamon sticks) or top the Hot Apple Pie Punch with homemade Cinnamon Whisky Whipped Cream like this recipe from Southern Fatty.
