Drink it as juice? Use it in cooking? Freeze it, and if you need some sweetening after your next batch is done, use some of it?

I got nothing else!

Here's what I decided to do with my unfermentable cider: I took five one gallon water jugs I had, put a few pinches of allspice and cloves in each along with a cinnamon stick. I had two fifths of brandy and a fifth of dark rum. I divided these bottle among the five one gallon jugs and then filled the remainder of the jugs with the cider. It smells really good. I haven't tasted it yet because I want to wait a bit so the spices can permeate the cider. Here's hoping!
