Spicy Apple Nog

This surprising Fall hot drink is like an apple pie in a cup! Warm apple juice, infused with real cinnamon sticks and vanilla, gets elevated with the addition of butter and cream made from 100% Canadian Milk. Top it with homemade whipped cream and cinnamon to get the full experience: this Spicy Apple Nog is part apple pie, part specialty hot drink, and 100% flavourful.

Brew this wonderful hot drink on a cozy day inside, or hold the whipped cream and bring it in a Thermos on your next hike to watch the Fall foliage— either way, your tastebuds will enjoy it. We recommend pairing it with a sweet treat, such as a pumpkin dessert or an apple pie , for the perfect Fall feast to share with friends and family.
