Mixology >> No. 12 VODKA >> Spiked & Spiced Cider



The perfect drink for warming up with by the fire. Apple, pear and spice combine to make a silky smooth sipper.

Warm together in a small saucepan without boiling:

  • 1 ½ oz Laneway No.12 Vodka
  • ½ oz Spiced Pear Simple Syrup*
  • 4 oz fresh-pressed apple or pear cider
  • 1 tbsp fresh-squeezed lemon juice

Serve in a heat-proof glass or mug

⁠*Spiced Pear Simple Syrup

  • 4-5 cored and chopped pears (unpeeled)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • ½ cinnamon stick
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract

This is a versatile and easy to make syrup that we’ve used in a few of our seasonal cocktails where it brings a warm spice and silky texture. Add water and sugar to a medium-sized saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Add the pears and cinnamon stick, then simmer for 15-20 minutes, occasionally stirring gently to prevent sticking. Strain into a covered glass jar, being careful not to press the cooked pears (to avoid giving your syrup a cloudy texture). Add vanilla extract to the mix and store in the fridge.⁠
