One of my favorite things about the fall is enjoying the cooling weather. I truly love being about to enjoy being outside and doing fall-ish things with my family – apple picking and pumpkin picking, watching the hounds at one of the local farms, or playing on the playground while bundled in sweatshirts. All of the kids in our neighborhood are suddenly outside again, after being holed up away from the heat (or at the pool) for the summer, and they all run a muck between the various houses with the parents chatting nearby. I love summer, but fall may be my favorite season because of all of this.

While spending time outside if wonderful, my guilty pleasure is finding a quiet moment to to cuddle up under the humongous wool afghan my mom made for me with a warm drink and a book. With this in mind, I knew that one of the first recipes I’d be making for #AppleWeek is a mulled cider.

Mulled Apple Cider

This particular recipe has a wonderfully subtle orange note from the orange extract. I think that makes it one of my favorite mulled cider recipes to date. This cider recipe takes minutes to put together and then simmers away on the stove for as long as you’d like to leave it. It’s a great recipe to bookmark for fall and winter entertaining, or to take with you on those fall outings.

Recipe Notes: 

  • Feel free to spike with your preferred liquor. I enjoy it with a shot of spiced rum or Fireball (cinnamon) whiskey, but use whatever you’d like (one friend used to enjoy caramel vodka in her warm cider).
  • Cider may be made or kept warm in a slow cooker, if desired.
  • I  garnished mine with apple slices, but you can certainly play up the orange notes with an orange slice as the garnish as well.
