At first, Frizell thought the drink sounded terrible, but he agreed to make his own version. It’s a staple on the menu to this day.

The warm drink is finished with orange and lemon slices. Macguire recently decided to call the drink, which they had been serving without a name, the Spiced Cider Bomb. She admits the name initially gave her pause, “We also have Car Bomb milkshakes. We don’t want to start sounding like a terrorist organization,” she told The Daily Beast.
