Today I wanted to share a simple entertaining idea/recipe that is perfect for Fall. Whether you are hosting a tailgate or simply looking for a warm and cozy after dinner drink to enjoy with your guests, hot mulled apple cider never fails to be a crowd pleaser. Below I have included a list of what you will need to make this delicious beverage alongside some of my favorite serving accessories. As the days grow shorter and the weather turns much colder, hot mulled apple cider is the perfect way to keep warm while enjoying time with close friends.
For the Cider:
- 1 Quart Apple Cider (Williams Sonoma or from your local grocery store)
- Mulling Spices (my favorites include: Whole Foods and Williams Sonoma)
- Tea Infuser (Large or Single) *Optional*
- Cinnamon Sticks
- Brandy or Gold Rum (for those age 21+)
*In a large pot, simmer 1 quart of apple cider over medium heat with 2Tbs of mulling spices for approximately 20minutes. Remove tea infuser (or pour cider through a sieve if spices were added loosely to cider while cooking). Serve warm and garnished with a cinnamon stick, apple crisp and even an additional jigger of brandy or rum (for adults)!
