Thanks for the recipe! This was really good. I used apple juice instead of cider and I omitted the brown sugar and orange slices.

Really good; I only added about 1/8 c sugar, and put in a few orange slices too. Everyone seemed to like it a lot.

Also....I made it in the crock pot; great way to have cider ready when guests want it!

Great recipe, very nice flavor. However I only used 1/4 cup brown sugar and still found it awfully sweet. Next time I just might omit the brown sugar, or use 1/8th. I used 100% pure apple juice unsweetened.

Also, there really isn't any need for the allspice, if you don't have it. All it is, is a mixture of nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves, which this recipe already asks for.

Otherwise, fantastic. I'll be making this again!

Huge hit when I served this at my niece's bridal shower! Guests didn't even touch the coffee...very unusual! I put all ingredients in a crockpot in the morning and it was ready to go and wonderfully hot for the whole party. Great recipe!

I made this last night and oh was it good, I think next time though I will leave out the brown sugar...I like my cider as sweet as it already is. I will be making this again!!

This is exactly the taste I think of when I think of hot apple cider. My dad used to sell pre-packaged "mulling spice" in his roadside stand, and would always have cider that we pressed in the fall in a big coffee brewer for customers to sample. This tastes just how I remember it tasting as a kid. Of course the only difference is that the cider I have access to now isn't quite as fresh ;o) I made this for a large group, and used 2 gallons of cider. I only did 3x the rest of the ingredients though, and it was sufficiently spiced after the 20 minute simmer. Definitely don't omit the orange wedges - they balance out the flavor perfectly!

I've never made cider before, but this came out great, and the guests loved it!

Delish! I took this to a UF vs. FSU party&everyone loved it. It was just about finished by the time I went back up for another cup! I didn't have whole allspice or cloves, so I used ground&put it in a coffee filter that seeped with everything in the crock pot. I would love experimenting with this to make it a hard cider, especially because everyone was asking if was spiked, lol. I plan on using this for an upcoming Christmas party, thanks!
