Mulled Cider Recipe.
Two recipe’s for a festive mulled cider!
Mulled cider, and wine, are gladly consumed throughout December and for good reason too – they’re so festive and warming. Just what you need on a cold Winter’s day/evening.
I’m not one for mulled wine, however I am partial to a mulled cider; I prefer the sweeter apple taste that you get from it. However, I’m not a big drinker so I also decided to put together a non-alcoholic recipe too! I’ve taken inspiration from Coffee #1’s ‘Mulled Apple & Cinnamon’ drink for this one. If you haven’t tried it, then you need to. It’s absolutely delicious and a firm favourite of mine.
Non-Alcoholic Mulled Apple & Cinnamon
- 500ml Apple Juice
- A Sprinkle of Cinnamon/1 Cinnamon Stick
- 3 Cloves
- A Dash of Honey
I based my recipe off of this one, just with no orange as I can’t have it! No method needed – simply stir all of your ingredients together in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Then cover and keep warm until serving, or enjoy straight away! Recipe serves 4.
- Cider of Choice – 500ml
- 125ml Apple Juice
- 125ml Ginger Tea (optional, use 250ml of Apple Juice if you don’t want this)
- 1 Cinnamon Stick
- 2 Cloves
- 20g Soft Dark Brown Sugar
I based my recipe off of Nigella Lawson’s recipe. Again, no method needed – simply bung all of your ingredients into a saucepan and bring to the boil. Cover and keep warm until needed, or enjoy straight away. Recipe serves 3.
By all means please do add orange to yours, I have an intolerant to citrus so unfortunately can’t add any to mine! However, I know most original recipes do have orange or lemon in them.
Tip: Pour your mulled cider into a travel mug to take out on a Winter walk with you. Hunt out the best Christmas lights, on people’s homes, in your local area and sip your warming cup of mulled cider – yum! Pop on your bobble hat, thick scarf and toasty gloves to ensure maximum warmth and cosiness.
