Spiced Mulled Cider Recipe

Hot, Spicy Apple Cider Warms the Heart

Warm mulled cider is a great way to please a crowd on chilly days. It is easy to make and doesn't cost much. A great way to start the holidays! @bigmill | https://chloesblog.bigmill.com/spiced-mulled-cider-recipe

Spiced Hot Apple Cider tastes great and you can kick it up with a shot of brandy

A great way to welcome fall and the chill in the air is to make up some hot, spicy cider. If you live where apples are grown, then you can use fresh-pressed cider.

The rest of us can pick up some great cider in the store and create our own brewing spices. North Carolina apples are the best – I see a road trip coming!

Spiced Mulled Cider

A pot of steaming cider is perfect for holiday parties. The hot cider is good for those who don't want alcohol, but you can also add a splash of brandy.to kick it up a notch. This recipe is so easy when prepared ahead in a crock pot and left to work its magic.

Ingredients

  • 1 orange, washed
  • 7 or 8 whole cloves
  • 2 quarts apple cider
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar
  • 2 sticks cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ lemon, washed and sliced
  • Brandy, optional
  • Dried apples, oranges or star anise for garnish, optional

Instructions

  • Stick the cloves into the orange and then slice the orange. Combine the clove-orange pieces, cider, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger and lemon slices. Simmer in a large pot over low heat for at least thirty minutes. A crock-pot works great for this. Serve hot.
  • A splash of brandy can be added to each cup for an added kick. Garnish with a dried slice of apple or orange or a star anise.

Notes

If you cook in a crock pot, the cider stays warm and the aroma is fabulous

I like to make this recipe for spiced mulled apple cider in the crock pot and let the aroma fill the house. Guests love it. I make the drink even prettier by adding a slice of dried apple or orange.

If you want to add a kick to the cider, just add brandy to the cup — or serve virgin. Either way, it is wonderful.

Hot apple cider is the perfect beverage for cool days and holiday parties Easy, inexpensive recipe guaranteed to please your guests. @bigmill | https://chloesblog.bigmill.com/spiced-mulled-cider-recipe
