Mulled Apple Cider

  • Author: Cori Horton
  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 4 cups 1x


Nothing goes with a fine fall day and the smell of smoke in the air quite like a good mulled apple cider. So easy and DELICIOUS!


  • 4 cups (1 liter/quart) apple cider
  • 1 orange, thinly sliced
  • Zest of one lemon
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 vanilla bean, whole
  • 8 cloves, whole
  • 4 pods cardamom, whole
  • 10 coriander seeds, whole


  1. In a large pot, add cider, spices, and citrus and bring to a quick boil.  Reduce heat and simmer for about ten minutes, stirring occasionally to keep your spices from scorching then remove from heat and steep for anywhere from 20 minutes – 4 hours.  At this point you can filter if you’re so inclined to sift out all the cloudy bits using a coffee filter or tea ball, Personally, I love the cloudy, bits of spice, apple pulp, and citrus.
  2. To serve, reheat, drag it into the backyard, and ladle straight from the pot, avoiding the solids at the bottom.  Add your favorite apple-friendly booze. One might recommend a good demerara rum, a decent whiskey, a splash of brandy, or go all apple and pick up a bottle of Calvados, which is a great addition to your apple pie.  (Mmmmm, pie…)
