Warm cider is one of my favorite sips during the fall and winter – especially during the holidays! And my Warm Cranberry Pomegranate Cider certainly is a favorite I make often during this season! It’s such a quick and easy drink to make – and is absolutely delicious too! It’s so festive and beautiful for serving throughout the holidays, yet easy enough to make any time! My recipe gives instructions to make this in a slow cooker, on your stovetop or in a coffee urn (which makes it perfect for parties)! No matter which method you use to make it, this cider fills the house with the most fragrant smell as it brews! 

I hope you make it a part of your holidays and cold weather sipping too!

The aroma reminds me of the smell of a drink served on an Alaskan Cruise  – and the crisp cool air!

While on our cruise, one afternoon we sat at a table at the back of the ship for a bite to eat and to take in the gorgeous views.  As we were sitting there, the table next to us was brought a tray of drinks that just smelled fresh and amazing. 

I immediately knew that when I returned home, I wanted to do my best to recreate the aroma in a drink that everyone in the family could enjoy! This is it!

Made with a blend of cranberry juice, pomegranate juice, apple cider, citrus and warm spices, this drink is one that is just perfect during the cooler months, but especially throughout the holidays!

A little different from my Mulled Apple Cider, this drink is a gorgeous berry color perfect for parties and get togethers all throughout the holiday season! 

I absolutely love my Homemade Apple Cider (it’s so easy – and hope you try it too), yet it’s made even more decadent and beautiful with the addition of gorgeous berry colored juices from cranberries and pomegranates. 

How to Make Warm Cranberry Pomegranate Cider

This cider has a scrumptious combination of delicious ingredients.

Here’s what you need to make it: 

  • Apple Cider – I recommend using my easy, Homemade Apple Cider, but you can use some from the store if you want. 
  • Cinnamon Sticks
  • Cranberry Juice
  • Pomegranate Juice
  • Orange Juice
  • Dark Brown Sugar to taste (optional)

Optional Garnishes – rosemary sprigs and sugared cranberries

You can make this easy cider by any of these three methods: Stovetop, Slow Cooker, or Coffee Urn.

With each of these methods, you’ll add the ingredients and heat for the instructed time. Then keep the cider warm until ready to garnish and serve. 

Note about the garnish  – I garnished my Warm Cranberry Pomegranate Cider with a sprig of fresh rosemary and a skewer of sugared cranberries. It just makes the already delectable drink even more enticing!

Note about the Apple Cider – I love to use my homemade apple cider in this recipe, but you can definitely use your favorite store bought apple cider as well.

While my Warm Cranberry Pomegranate Cider is non-alcoholic, you could definitely include alcohol in this drink if you prefer. I would recommend using rum, bourbon or apple jack, if you choose to do so.

  1. I have a similar recipe which is made in a 24-cup coffee pot.  The cinnamon sticks, brown sugar, and some cloves are put in the basket.  The juices just perk through until the house smells heavenly.  And then, you just serve it from the spigot. 

  2. If you put spices in a coffee urn to brew, enclose them in SOMETHING… tea ‘thing’ or cheesecloth– or they could plug up the spigot –I’ve had it happen, and it’s not pretty.
    Not sure about the whiskey– maybe Rum or Vodka…
