Hot Mulled Cider Recipe

A seasonal favorite! This is a delicious drink to enjoy throughout the fall and winter.


  • 6 cups Sunrise Apple Cider
  • 3 cinnamon sticks
  • 6 whole cloves
  • 3 strips orange peel, removed with a vegetable peeler
  • Apples and cinnamon sticks for garnish


1. In a large saucepan combine cider, cinnamon sticks, cloves and orange peel to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered 30 minutes.

2. Strain the mixture through a fine strainer (or line a strainer with cheesecloth) into a heat-proof pitcher and serve. Or if you prefer, strain cider into a pan and ladle into mugs and serve.

Garnish with apple slices and cinnamon sticks in each mug.

Note: A slow cooker on a low setting can be used to heat the cider for 2-4 hours.
