Warm Spiced Cider

A favorite with young and old alike, this warm, fragrant cider is just the thing to start a Fall or Winter party. A splash of rum or brandy is a nice touch for the grown-ups. If you are serving a crowd, double the recipe and store the warm cider in a coffee urn or a few thermal carafes.

Warm Spiced Cider Recipe

Ingredients

  1. 2 quarts apple cider
    1 teaspoon whole allspice berries
    2 4-inch cinnamon sticks
    6 whole cloves
    1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan over low heat, combine the cider and spices and heat for 30 minutes.
  2. Strain the cider and discard the spices. (At this point, you can let cool, store in an airtight container, and refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 2 months.) Serve warm. Alternately cook in a slow cooker: Combine the ingredients in a 5 to 6 quart slow cooker and heat on low for 3 to 4 hours, until warmed through.

Makes 12 drinks.
