Spiked Apple Cider in Apple Cups

Carved apples filled with a mixture of homemade apple cider and rum.

Apple Cider and Rum | www.diethood.com

Aren’t these cups the neatest things ever? I love them! I wish I was the genius creator, but I’m not. I’m not that crafty. Wish I was.

But I am the person that lets all the cars cut-in right in front of them. And the person that allows everyone to cut-in even at the grocery store. That’s me. I’m that person!

To pay for my groceries I end up waiting in-line for over 15 minutes because if I see someone with less items, I let them go ahead of me. During that wait I end up adding to my bill because I can’t stop grabbing magazines, mini-sized flashlights, and all other useless, or useful, items that they have near the cash register.

But sometimes those items can result in something interesting, or delicious… That’s the story with these apples.

As I was going through the magazine rack, I picked up one with a title, “Halloween Food, Fun, & Crafts”. Can’t go wrong with a title like that. As soon as I got to page 8, I was in the kitchen cutting up apple tops and pouring shots of rum.

If you have a chance to make these, and I really think you should because they are totally fun, you can leave out the rum for those underagers. 🙂

  1. Crafty or not these are awesome Kate! I think both kids and grown ups would find them entertaining to say the least. Oh, and I’m so the girl that grabs those last minute magazines cause she let someone go ahead of her with less items. It’s just the nice thing to do ;-). This recipe = awesomeness!

  2. This is looking a lovely combo… ! I Love the spiked apple cups, looking wow, the photo plus recipe…. ! I can imagine how gud the cup is to satiate ur thirst. Congrats on top 9. Cheers, Sonia

  3. Lora @cakeduchess

    These apple cups are gorgeous! Love the cider recipe and would love to have a cup today and pretend it’s actually crisp and cool outside;) Congrats on Top 9:)

  4. Too cute Kate, this is a great idea! I seen that magazine today while I was standing in line but didn’t flip through it. Then I saw your recipe over at Tasty Kitchen. Fate maybe?

  5. You may not have created the idea – but these are super cute and you are who introduced them to me! Who would not want to drink out of a cute little apple cup – especially one filled with spiked cider?

  6. This looks great kate!
    sometimes I have and think of something when we’re in a cashier line up and end up doing everything in the kitchen, brilliant idea with the apple and the juice 🙂
    tq for sharing the recipe kate… buzzed!;)

  7. Such a cute story! I’m exactly the same way at the market, I hate when I have 3. 2 million things in my cart and someone has 4 things after me. It makes me anxious.

    I love these apple cups so tasty and inviting. Beautifully done and I have a huge bottle of rum I’ll be using over the holidays maybe apple spiked cider eggnog. oh the possibilities.

    I hope you have a great week 🙂

  8. That’s a really genius idea! 🙂 So festive!
    As for the letting people with fewer items in front of you — I was taught that was the polite way to do, so you are not the only one 😉

  9. I luv what you’ve done here with the apples and carving them out into little usable, edible dishes. How ingenious! I’m on the lookout for that magazine of ideas. Thanks for sharing…these apple cups just make me smile. 🙂

  10. I love these apple cups, so cute, especially when they are filled with rum;)
    These are perfect for a small Fall gathering. I always look at the food recipes, standing in line.
