Spiked Apple Cider

Add this cocktail to your party menu and you’re sure to have a blast.

One crock pot +  mulling spices + alcohol = one fabulous holiday cocktail.

You’ll need:

1 gallon of apple cider

2 cups of apple brandy (peach brandy works as well)

1/2 cup of spiced rum

8 fresh cinnamon sticks

whole cloves

4 tbs Mulling spices (William Sonoma brand is my favorite)

1 orange sliced

Equal parts of cinnamon and sugar mixed well (to rim the glass)


Slice orange in to about 4 slices. press 4-5 whole cloves in to each orange slice just like a pin cushion.

Slice up more oranges to use as a garnish if you wish.

Pour all ingredients (except cinnamon sugar) in to a crock pot and set to medium. Let that heat up for about an 2 hours.

Just before serving time turn the heat to low and keep it there the remainder.

To serve- wet the rim of your glass with an orange wedge, then dip and twist it in the cinnamon sugar mix.

Ladel the cider into the glass and garnish with a fresh cinnamon stick.
