Warm Spiced Cider

In Recipes on January 7, 2011 at 10:06 pm

This is a fan favorite! A quick tip, if you have a slow cooker, combine all the ingredients in it and let it simmer.  You can even serve the cider out of the cooker for the party.  Saves time and dishes! Try topping it with some whipped cream.  Yum!!

Yield: 12

Cooking Time: 30

2 quarts good apple cider

1 tablespoon allspice berries

6, 4 inch cinnamon sticks

8 whole cloves

1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

Rum or brandy to taste


In a large saucepan over medium heat combine the cider and all the spices.  Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer for 30 minutes.  Strain the cider to remove the spices.

Add in rum or brandy to taste.  Garnish with whipped cream and serve warm.

*If you choose to use a slow cooker, combine all ingredients and heat on low for 3-4 hours.
