This Mulled Cider is a classic warm fall beverage. Apple Cider infused with fall spices is the perfect way to warm up this season!
Hi guys! I’m quickly popping in for the next installment of Simple Saturday.
Yesterday was like a summer day at the beach. The sun was shining and temps were in the 80’s. It was crazy! What’s even crazier is today it’s windy and temps are in the 50’s! Wah wah! I decided the perfect way to warm up would be with one of my fall favorites. A nice steamy mug of my Mulled Cider.
If you’ve never tried Mulled Cider, you’ve totally been missing out! Nothing beats the smell of apple cider infused with orange slices and fall spices. And of course, keeping with the theme of Simple Saturday, this recipe couldn’t be simpler. Just add some good quality apple cider, orange slices, whole cloves, whole allspice berries, cinnamon sticks, star anise, a bit of brown sugar and a pinch of salt to a large saucepan and bring to almost a boil. Lower the heat and simmer for 30 minutes. That’s it!
It’s time to break out the fuzzy slippers and grab a mug folks. The smell will permeate your home and you’ll be feelin’ warm and cozy in no time! Enjoy!
