Mulled Cider

Last year for my birthday, Jimmy and I visited our favorite winery. They has this cider and we got a few bottles. It was really good and we wanted to make a mulled cider with it, however we didn’t. While I was visiting my in laws in October, we went to this huge craft fair and I got some apple cider. Since we had cooler temps, I decided to make mulled cider with it. And the hub was really impressed with it. He wasn’t sure if he would like, but he loved it.

This is a great drink to make for a large crowd, this recipe is easy to double. Just add all the ingredients to a saucepan and let it simmer away. Not only does it taste good, but it smells good too. We love to add a shot of bourbon to it. It is the perfect drink for a cozy day.
