Mulled Cider

Mulled CiderOn chilly winter days, after a bracing morning in the garden, what could be more comforting than a glass of warming mulled cider. The very thought is bliss.


  • 1½ l dry cider
  • 7 tbsp apple brandy, apple liqueur, calvados or just brandy
  • 400ml apple juice
  • 75g dark brown sugar
  • Zest 1 orange, pared into strips
  • 4 whole cloves
  • 2 cinnamon sticks broken in half
  • 1 tbsp allspice berries or just some dried cranberries


  1. Pour the cider, calvados/spirit/ liqueur, apple juice and sugar into a large saucepan, and gently heat to mull. Don’t boil.
  2. Add the orange zest and spices, bring to a simmer, then turn down and keep on a low heat for 20-30 mins. Ladle into glasses or mugs to serve. Watch out, they will be hot!
