Mulled Cider/Wine

Exotic fragrance and warm rich flavors from my own Mulling Spices for awesome mulled cider or wine for the cold seasons.

Mulled Cider/Wine

Course Beverage
Cuisine Western
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 45 minutes
Total Time 55 minutes


  • 1/2 gallon apple cider (OR 2 750ml bottles of red wine)
  • 1 packet Mulling Spices
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 orange


  • Peel the orange, trying to get as little of the white stuff (pith) as possible. Cut the peel into squares, slices, or slivers.
  • Place the orange slices in a pan and just cover with cold water. Set on high heat and bring to a boil, then drain off the water. Cover again with cold water, and repeat this another one or two times.
  • In a good-sized saucepan, place the cider or wine, the mulling spices, the sugar and the orange peel.
  • Cook over medium-high heat, stirring regularly, until it reaches a rolling boil.
  • Reduce heat to low (should still be steadily bubbling, but not boiling) and simmer for 20-30 minutes, stirring regularly.
  • Strain carefully and serve in teacups or mugs. Many folks decorate the cup with a whole cinnamon stick.
