Spiced apple cider is a perennial cool-weather favorite. This mulled cider recipe is very easy to make and is more spiced than most apple cider recipes.


  • 1/2 gallon apple cider (preferably unfiltered)
  • 6 green cardamom pods
  • 1 tbsp. allspice berries
  • 1 tbsp. whole cloves
  • 3 cinnamon sticks, plus more for garnish
  • 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar (optional)
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 orange
  • Dark rum, brandy or port (to taste, optional)
Assemble all ingredients, a tea sock or piece of cheesecloth, and a Crock Pot.
