Spiced mulled cider

mulled cider

Food’s not the only thing that can be spiced. With winter just round the corner the famous festive tipple is almost acceptable. Here’s a recipe with a cinnamon kick that will warm you up in no time.

Serves 2

  • 1 apple (and an extra apple for garnish)
  • 2 bottles of 500ml cider (we choose Kopparberg)
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • Zest of half an orange

Using a knife, cut small crosses in the apple. Put the apple, cider, cinnamon and orange zest in a large saucepan. Heat to a simmer and then simmer for 20 minutes. Don’t let it boil.


Share between two glasses or mugs. Top with slices of the remaining apple.

      I usually have mulled wine but cider just seems so much better for this time of year. Can’t believe I waited til now to make my own

        I definitely love mulled wine too! I started drinking it when I lived in Germany and haven’t looked back.
