Today is National Hot Mulled Cider Day – one of my favorite beverage holidays. There’s just something cozy about a steaming mug of apple cider out by a bonfire on a windy autumn evening.
1 gallon apple cider
½ cup brown sugar
6 whole cloves
1 tsp whole allspice
Dash of nutmeg
1 cinnamon stick for each mug
Heat the ingredients to boiling and then reduce heat to simmer for 10 minutes. Or, double the recipe and place in a large slow cooker and let it simmer all evening.
You can also add a shot of bourbon or spiced rum to each drink for an extra autumn kick.
