Mulled Cider

Nothing says “the holidays” like spiced booze. Here’s a recipe I came up with last week when we went trick or treating with our son and some family friends. This recipe has no alcohol in it but add a glug of your favorite spirit and you’re good to go!

Mulled cider

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 gallon apple cider or juice
  • 3 strips of orange peel
  • 3 strips of lemon peel
  • 3 slices of fresh ginger
  • 5 or so peppercorns
  • 4 or so allspice berries
  • 3 cardamom pods
  • 4 or so whole cloves
  • 1-2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1/2 tsp. grated nutmeg

Directions:

Place all ingredients into a saucepan. Cover and bring to a boil. Turn down heat and simmer for an hour or two. Pour into a thermos and enjoy while out in the cold!
