HotMulled Apple Cider
There is nothing better on a cool fall evening or holiday open house than Hot Mulled Apple Cider. It makes the whole house smell deliciously wonderful and it's a family favorite. Everyone loves hot spiced cider.
- 1 gallon fresh cider or organic unfiltered apple juice
- 1 medium orange cut into 1/4 inch rounds
- 1 1 1/2-inch piece peeled fresh ginger, cut into 1/4 in cubes
- 4 3-inch cinnamon sticks
- 1 tablespoon whole cloves
- 2 whole star anise pods
- Orange slices for serving (optional)
Pour the cider into a 5-quart or larger stock pot or larger slow cooker.
Add the orange, ginger, and cinnamon to the pot.
Place cloves and star anise pods in a double layer of cheesecloth (or in a pinch a coffee filter will work), gather it up and tie closed with kitchen twine or a twist tie.
Cover the pot or slow cooker and cook until the flavors come together. For the stove top version cook for about 45 minutes to an hour. In a slow cooker, you'll want to heat for 2 - 4 hours on LOW.
Serve immediately or keep warm. Serve in coffee mugs
For the adults in the group, you can always serve a little good quality rum on the side.
- Buy fresh apple cider or organic unfiltered apple juice for the best flavor.
- Cider can be kept tightly sealed in a glass jar for about a week (assuming the original cider would still be good). Just make sure to remove all the spices prior to refrigerating. Discard mulled cider by the cider expiration date.

Vampiro Tequila Cocktail with Jalisco Sangrita. This spicy tequila cocktail mixed with a traditional Jalisco Sangrita. Sangrita’s are my new cocktail obsession. Sangrita or “little blood” has traditionally been served as a chaser for excellent quality tequila. It would have been a mixture of fruit juices and finely ground chili pepper. Many sangrita recipes call for tomato juice, but that would not have been part of the traditional recipe, the original recipe would have been made from leftover juice from fresh fruit salads and changed based on the fruits used.
Today’s cocktail culture is creating very intriguing sangritas as an ingredient in some pretty amazing tequila cocktails. This recipe calls for a combination of grapefruit, orange, and lime with a touch of spicy jalapeno pepper.
