The 25 Days of Holiday Goodies Day 18: Warm Mulled Cranberry Apple Cider

25 Days of Christmas Goodies Button

No Holiday Goodies season of posts would be complete without something warm to sip to remove the late fall-early winter chill from the bones.

And this recipe with the clove-studded orange slices appears so festive!

In addition, have you ever noticed how the addition of cinnamon sticks to a brew makes the favor so out of this world yummy?

On the minus side, this recipe is a bit of a bear—the sieving, that is. But the taste and the warmth that spreads through you as you sip this delicious concoction make all of the effort seem worth it!

Muffin, however, did not like it.

1 gallon apple cider

1 whole orange, sliced

1 tablespoon whole cloves

2 cups fresh cranberries plus more for garnish

1 inch piece of fresh ginger

5 cinnamon sticks (plus more for garnish)

1 whole apple, sliced

Prepare orange slices by carefully studding the rind with whole cloves; set aside.

In a blender, combine cranberries, ginger, and ½ cup apple. Blend until smooth. Reserve.

Pour remaining apple cider into a slow cooker. Add cranberry mixture (once pressed through a sieve), cinnamon sticks, and orange slices.

Simmer on low in a slow cooker for 8 hours. Serve warm with sliced apple and cranberry sticks.

What is your favorite warm fall beverage?
