Warm Mulled Apple Cider

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 20 mins

This is a drink that has become a family tradition. We make a pot for all winter family events. It goes well with Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, or just a winter family get together. The best thing is that it is incredibly easy so you have a hot sipping drink and more time for fun with family.


  1. Pour the apple cider into a wide pot over medium high heat.
  2. Add in the apple slices, orange slices, cinnamon sticks, cloves, allspice berries.
  3. heat uncovered until it boils and then turn down the heat to a simmer.
  4. Its ready to serve when the apples are cooked through (about 20 minutes).
  5. We use a ladle to spoon into mugs as needed, and leave it on a very low simmer all day.

Made a batch of this great tasting cider & just in time, what with the return of a little cold weather yet before the full bloom of summer! Outstanding as is, but then I find it's also very nice when I combined 3 equal measures ~ one of this cider, one of mango juice & one of a strongly brewed green tea! What can I say ~ My version of 'mixed' drinks! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed for 1 of my adopted chefs in the current Pick A Chef]
