Spiced Apple Cider

It is always nice to have hot cocoa on a snowy day, but sometimes the chocolate is just too much. Spiced cider is another holiday drink that is easy to make, but is less filling than hot chocolate. This recipe is kind of a cheater recipe, considering that I didn’t actually make the cider myself, but it makes a great drink for holiday parties. Add a little bit of spiced rum to the cider and you are ready to go!


Spiced Cider

Serves 8

  • 1 (64 oz) bottle of apple cider
  • 3 cinnamon sticks
  • 1/2 tsp whole cloves
  • 1/2 tsp allspice
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar

Directions:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a slow cooker (you may put the cloves in cheesecloth if you don’t want to fish around them for the cider).
  2. Cook on high for 1 hour.
  3. Turn to low to keep warm. Stir before serving.
