My family loves a cup of warm mulled apple cider. We start making it as soon as the evening air becomes crisp and cool and enjoy it throughout the fall and winter months!

I love to have a pot of it simmering on the stovetop for my family or in the slow cooker when we’re having friends over to watch the game, tailgating or camping in the RV, and I love pulling out my large urn throughout the holidays when we are entertaining.

Everyone seems to gravitate to a warm mug of mulled apple cider and it always makes my house smell amazing!

I like to keep my mulled apple cider simple and easy, with items that I likely keep on hand.

Good apple cider as a base is pretty understandable. One that you’d enjoy drinking on its own is what I’d recommend. Then, to that, I include apples, oranges, cinnamon, and cloves. Of course, if you are serving all adult guests, you could include a bit of rum, bourbon or even applejack would be delicious. You could also set these items to the side of the urn on a bar cart for guests to include their own personal preference. This is generally what I do so that those who chose to do so may, but for the vast majority of us, we love the mulled apple cider as is.
