Mulled Apple Cider Collection

This Mulled Apple Cider Collection offers some hot drink ideas that would be so great during the holidays!

Cranberry Mulled Cider

Hello, everyone. It’s hard to believe, but I am wrapping up my Christmas season on this blog. Where did all the time go? I haven’t been able to try all the festive ideas I had planned. On the other hand, thanks to good time management, I was able to share 14 holiday ideas this year. I think I’ve absolutely deserved some time for myself, so this is going to be the last recipe before Christmas. I am going to take it easy for a week and enjoy Christmas movies, all the cookies and hot tea (Or perhaps mulled apple cider.) However, this doesn’t mean I am wrapping up the entire holiday season. I will be back with another two recipes for the New Year celebration!

Anyway, let’s talk for a minute about this Mulled Apple Cider Collection. It is not technically the recipe – it’s just a couple of ideas combined in one post. Besides, last year I had a lot of fun creating this Christmas Tea Collection, so I wanted to do something similar.

As I said, it’s not about the recipe or even approximate proportions. In fact, this collection isn’t even about the flavouring options. These options are endless, as you can imagine. Also, while I used traditional apple cider, you can use flavoured one, or even non-alcoholic, if you prefer. I didn’t use any sugar for this collection – instead, I was using honey and fruit juices to sweeten it up; but you can add some sugar if desired. Moreover, you even spike it with some alcohol like rum or whiskey…because that’s the holiday season, after all!

So, let me wish you a very berry merry Christmas. Please enjoy your pyjamas, fireplace, hot chocolate, and hopefully something from this Mulled Apple Cider Collection. And please don’t eat all the cookies by yourself – leave a couple for Santa!

Cheers and see you in one week.

  1. I bet your house smells sooooo good while you’re making this Ben!!! I’m not a big drinker, but during the holidays I make an exception haha! There is just something about sitting there around the tree with either an eggnog and rum or a warm, mulled wine or mulled cider like this! Delicious looking recipe, Ben. Merry Christmas!!!

  2. I absolutely love mulled cider! Not only does it taste delicious, but it makes the whole house smell so good, too. I love the lineup of ciders you have here. I’m thinking I’ll spend the next week working my way through them. :-) Enjoy the Christmas break, Ben!
