Thinking of Drinking: Spiked Fig Apple Cider

At our recent Lamb and Fig dinner, I made this Spiked Cider with figs and Diep 9 to go with our meal.  Special thank you to the California Fig Association for contributing the delicious fruit.  

1 gallon of apple cider
1 cup pureed figs
2 cinnamon sticks
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp cloves
Diep 9 apple and vanilla

Combine first 5 ingredients in a slow cooker.  Warm on low heat until it reaches your desired temperature.  Put a shot of Diep 9 apple and vanilla into your mug and ladle the cider on top.  Warm and comforting...another perfect drink for a lamb party.
