Hot Mulled Cider
Recipe By @GeorgeHirsch | Makes 8, eight ounce servings
2 quart apple cider
1/4 cup brown sugar
2-3 whole cloves; or more to garnish orange
1 Jumbo size orange
8 Cinnamon sticks
Optional: 4 ounces each Dark Rum & Vodka
In a small sauce pot, mix together cider, brown sugar, and cinnamon sticks. Simmer 5 to 10 minutes. Pour into a large punch bowl and add a clove studded orange, rum and vodka.
Serve warm with individual glasses or mugs and stir with a cinnamon stick.
Note: To make a studded orange, arrange cloves around the outside of the orange skin for an attractive presentation. However, do not keep the studded orange in the mulled cider for too long or the cloves will overpower this beverage.
