Mulled Cider

Another popular mulling beverage is cider, which can be perked up by the addition of a little spirit. Here is a nicely spiked mulled cider recipe:
  • 1 quart apple cider
  • 1 cup brandy
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 6 whole allspice
  • 6 whole cloves
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • ground nutmeg
  • orange slices

Combine all ingredients except brandy, orange slices and nutmeg in a pot and simmer for half an hour. Add brandy heat gently until just warm. Do not allow to boil once you have added the brandy. Strain and serve with floating orange slices and a dash of nutmeg as garnish.
