This recipe for Mulled Cider made in the slow-cooker is one of my husband’s favorites and he asks me to make it all the time when the weather is cold because it makes the house smell delicious and just hits the spot and warms you up. The ingredients are simple, apple cider (we like to use fresh pressed cider whenever we can get it) and then you spice it up with some orange zest, cinnamon, whole cloves, and fresh ginger.
You just let that simmer away for a couple hours until it is nice and hot and the spices have flavored the cider. Then ladle it into mugs and drink.
If you want to get adventurous…add some store bought caramel sauce and top with whipped cream for a Starbucks Caramel Apple Cider knock-off.
This recipe is also a great hot beverage to take to a party or holiday get-together. Just set out cups and a ladle and let your guests serve themselves straight from the crock-pot!
