Traditional Mulled Cider

A seasonal staple in the cider regions of England during the Holidays and Wassailing. Most  mull “cider” using fresh apple juice–but why not try it with a dry to semi-dry fermented cider.


  • 2L dry or semi-dry cider
  • 2 apples studded with cloves
  • 4-6 cinnamon sticks
  • 5-6 allspice berries
  • zest of 1/2 to 1 orange (to taste, too much can over power your drink)
  • Apple Brandy or Calvados to taste. You can also use an Ontario whiskey!
  • slices of apple for garnish


  1. Combine all ingredients in a large saucepan and simmer gently for 30 minutes – do not boil.
  2. Transfer to a heatproof bowl and ladle into glass mugs. Garnish with apple slices or cinnamon sticks to serve.
