I have another hot drink recipe for you today, perfect to serve on Christmas morning. A lot of hot juice recipes I have tried usually include adding sugar. Not this one and you don’t need it. This juice is delicious. I made it over Thanksgiving weekend and everyone loved it. I adapted this recipe from one at Musselman’s.
Hot Mulled Cider
- 1 gallon apple cider
- 3 cinnamon sticks
- 1 Tbsp whole cloves
- 1 Tsp whole allspice
- rind of 1/2 an orange
Pour apple cider into crockpot. Add the cinnamon sticks to the cider. In a square of cheesecloth, place cloves, allspice, and orange rind and tie closed. Cook on high for 2 hours. Remove cheese cloth and cinnamon sticks. Ladle cider into mugs. Makes 16 cups.
For stove top, place in a large pot and heat over medium until the cider just starts to boil. Reduce to simmer and cook for 15 minutes to. Stir occasionally.
