It wouldn't be a complete list of adult versions of favorite childhood foods without some booze. Here, cider is quickly steeped in spices—cloves, cinnamon, vanilla and nutmeg—before you add white wine and cranberries, which give the punch a light rosy hue. It goes down easily (a little too easily if you don't pace yourself), so make sure no one at the kid's table mistakes it for an innocuous mulled cider. Get the recipe at Food52.
