Holiday Spirits – Mulled Cider

Monday, December 23, 2013

A warming drink is always a cozy comfort on a cold day. Mix up a batch of this mulled cider so it’s ready and warming in the slow cooker and you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy your own party, too.

Mulled Cider


  • Peel of 1/2 orange
  • 6 inches cinnamon sticks, broken
  • 1 teaspoon allspice
  • 8 cups apple cider
  • 1 cup apple brandy
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 inch ginger root, peeled and sliced

Tie orange peel, cinnamon, ginger root, and allspice in an 8-inch square of cheesecloth. Combine apple cider, apple brandy, and honey in a slow cooker. Add spice bag. Cover and cook on low heat setting for 5 to 6 hours or on high heat setting for 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Remove and discard spice bag. Ladle cider into cups.

Amount: 9 8-ounce servings
