Still basking in the glow of Christmas tree lights, we’re enjoying a cozy weekend at home with our favorite cinnamon spiced apple cider. It’s a simple stovetop hot apple cider recipe.
This recipe makes about six servings.
- 8 cups apple cider or apple juice
- 1/8 cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp ground allspice
- 1 pinch ground nutmeg
- 8 whole cloves
- 1 orange, sliced
- 6 cinnamon sticks
- Whipped cream (optional)
Heat the cider, brown sugar, spices, and orange slices in a saucepan on medium to high heat to bring to a low boil for 6-8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat, keep warm.
Strain into individual mugs.
Garnish with cinnamon sticks and whipped cream if desired.
