Really Good Cider Mulled Wine
This Cider Mulled Wine is my latest fall go-to. It's a delicious way to warm up on a cool autumn day, plus it will make your kitchen smell incredible.
- 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
Begin by filling a spice bag with your mulling spices.
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.
Before serving, stir in the orange and apple slices. Serve immediately or keep covered and set on low (warheat.
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.)
*You can get my recipe for Homemade Mulling Spices here. You could also substitute your favorite mulling spice blend. Alternatively. you can use a couple of cinnamon sticks, five whole cloves, and five whole allspice.
**Feel free to add another cup of cider if you want more apple flavor.
