Celebrate Autumn’s Return with Spiked Mulled Cider

Whether you’re putting together a Halloween party, prepping recipe ideas for Thanksgiving, or simply want to enjoy a seasonal beverage at home — Spiked Mulled Cider is a delicious treat that’s incredibly easy to make! All you’ll need to do is combine the fresh, aromatic ingredients in a large slow cooker and let them simmer on low for about 4 hours. Once the Mulled Cider is completely cooked, it’s ready to be Spiked with your choice of  bourbon, brandy, or dark rum. Then voila — you have a cozy beverage that is perfect for any autumn occasion! 


  • 1 gallon fresh cider or unfiltered apple juice

  • 1 medium orange, ¼ inch thick slices 

  • 1 (1 1/2-inch) piece fresh ginger, ¼ inch thick slices 

  • 5 whole cinnamon sticks 

  • 1 tablespoon whole cloves

  • 5 star anise pods


  • 1 1/2 cups bourbon, brandy, or dark rum     

    • Spike your Mulled Cider after it has cooked for 4 hours


  • Serve in your favorite mugs, topped with an orange slice and a cinnamon stick 


Place the spices in a tea sachet so they can easily be removed from the slow cooker prior to serving — saving the cinnamon sticks for garnishing
