Mulled Apple Cider
Merry Christmas, everyone!
My family is visiting me in California this year, and they observe cocktail hour with a vengeance. So I whipped up a batch of The Pioneer Woman’s mulled apple cider for the group this Christmas Eve! She does have a version of the recipe on her website, but the one I made is from her cookbook which is slightly different.
The steps couldn’t be simpler – pour the apple cider into a pot, add chopped apple, orange peel, allspice berries, cinnamon sticks, cranberries, and sugar, and bring to a simmer.
After about an hour, apple brandy is added (optional) and it’s simmered a bit longer.
Then it is served hot!
This was sooooo good, but just a little too sweet for me. I don’t think it needs that extra sugar…or maybe adding half the amount would work. It did go over very well, though!
This was a nice and easy recipe! Not very difficult at all.
Cost: Average / Pricey
You will need apple cider, granny smith apples, orange, apple spice berries, cinnamon sticks, cranberries, sugar and, if you’d like, apple brandy.
