Warm Spiced Cider

Header image

Move over mulled wine, we’ve had some good times, but we’re ready for a change up. There’s a new kid on the block when it comes to hot boozy beverages and this IS IT. Sweet, appley, slightly spiced mulled cider is just about as warming and soothing as you can get. We’ve had a pretty good time ‘testing’ this recipe (well…. we had to get it right, y’know?), we suggest you test it for yourself, just to check we’ve got it right, of course…ahem.


  • 1.5 litres cider
  • 1 orange, zest peeled off into strips
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1tbsp cloves
  • a pinch of ground nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp allspice
  • 75ml rum

Make it!

  1. Add all the ingredients to a large pan
  2. Heat over a medium-low heat for about 15 mins. Watch it and make sure it doesn’t boil over
  3. Strain into heatproof cups and drink straight away

Simple as that. Let us know what you think of this recipe in the comments! If you liked the sound of this drink, check out some of our other booze infused recipes, like our Irish Hot Chocolate and our Gin & Tonic Popsicles.
