  1. To begin making this mulled cider recipe pour apple cider in a pan and heat on medium.

  2. Place all the spices in the muslin bag and pull the drawstring closed. Float the spices in the cider and simmer.
  3. Add sweetener as desired, or leave it out if you wish. Stir to dissolve. Simmer for at least 30 minutes, or more if you want to concentrate the flavors.
  4. When ready to serve, turn off the heat and remove spices. Seal spice bag a container and freeze for next time. (Mulling spices can be re-used 3-4 times before they begin to lose flavor.)

  5. To serve your mulled cider, place an orange or apple slice in a mug along with a cinnamon stick. Pour hot cider over this and sprinkle the top with cinnamon. If you wish, you can add a dollop of bourbon or rum. Serve hot!


Apple cider is acidic and will react to aluminum or other pans of this sort. Use stainless steel or ceramic coated pans when making this mulled cider recipe.
