Our own recipe for a fall and holiday favorite. Perfect for any gathering. Made with Musselman’s Fresh Pressed Apple Cider.
Pour the gallon of apple cider into a large pot on the stove or into a slow cooker. Add the cinnamon sticks.
Wrap the whole cloves and whole allspice in a square of cheesecloth and tie closed. Add to the cider.
Slice the orange into full circular slices. Add half into the cider and save the remaining for garnish.
Heat the cider until it just starts to boil, then lower the setting to simmer for another 15 minutes. Stir occasionally.
Remove the spices and oranges from the pot and ladle hot mulled cider into mugs.
If you don't have cheesecloth on hand, use a tea ball or a tied coffee filter to hold the spices. Add a splash of rum, brandy or cinnamon schnapps when serving to make a festive beverage. If you are leaving the slow cooker out for your party guests, stud an apple with cloves and float it in the cider.
