Mixed Drink Monday: caramel apple cider

This is most definitely my favorite winter drink.  I found it two years ago on Pinterest, then spent a good 2 week hunting down the Kissed Caramel Vodka.
I wish I was joking...but the liquor store guy knew me pretty well by the time I finally got it.  A few nice things about this one:

1) It's super easy to make.
2) It's super easy to change up how strong the drink is.
3) It's apple cider so perfectly acceptable for morning drinking (which I really only do on the weekends, honest).

After 2 winters my vodka bottle is almost gone and you can bet I will be replacing it soon.  Definitely my favorite winter drink.

Apple cider (I typically use the powdered mix because it's easy to keep on hand.  And I actually prefer it to the actual liquid one at the stores.)
Kissed Caramel Vodka

1) Heat up/make your cider in whatever method you choose.  I microwave my mug of water for 2 minutes and then add the powder.
2) Add vodka.  Stir. 

 My favorite way to enjoy is usually under a warm blanket with a good book.   But really, almost any way will do.
