Thanks - yes, I wanted the

Thanks - yes, I wanted the ingredient to be "spiced and reduced apple cider" but didn't think that merited adding a new ingredient - hopefully folks will read the notes before they start mixing as it requires hours to reduce and cool the cider. I am thinking of trying it with cider syrup and spicing the demerara in a future iteration.
