Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 2 hours


  • 2 tablespoons mulling spices*
  • 1 750 ml bottle dry white wine I used Sauvignon Blanc.
  • 4 cups apple cider**
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 orange sliced
  • 2 apples sliced
  • Additional cinnamon sticks for garnish


  1. Begin by filling a spice bag with your mulling spices.
  2. In a heavy-bottom saucepan or a slow cooker, add the bagged mulling spices, wine, cider, and honey. Mix to combine. Cover and cook on low for 2-3 hours. Remove the bagged mulling spices and discard them.
  3. Before serving, stir in the orange and apple slices. Serve immediately or keep covered and set on low (warheat.
  4. If desired, add a splash of spiced rum, brandy, or bourbon just before serving. (I usually don't do this because I think the depth of flavor is delightful as is.)
