Hey guys! Today I’m sharing a recipe passed along by one of my friends! A super easy mulled hot apple cider that you can make in your instant pot (crockpot, or on the stove). This recipe that is perfect for thanksgiving & the rest of the holidays! I love a good warm and cozy holiday drink! What you’ll need:
½ t whole allspice
1t whole cloves (ground works fine too)
1-2 Cinnamon sticks
¼ t salt
1/8-1/4 t nutmeg
1-2 oranges, quartered with peel on
1-2 quarts apple cider
**Optional: could add cranberries or even some lemons**
Cheese cloth or spice bag
Like most instant pot recipes, you literally just throw everything in the pot and turn in on haha. Same thing goes for this recipe! You can also find my reel that shows this recipe in action here!
First though wrap allspice, cloves, cinnamon sticks, and oranges in cheese cloth and place in crock pot. If using spice bag like I did, just put oranges in separate. Then add apple cider. Put instant pot on slow cooker mode, (or Dutch oven with lid on stove to simmer). Let simmer on low for ~2 hours. Remove cheesecloth/spice bag, oranges, etc. bunch to avoid having it too potent! Like my friend said who passed along this recipe, we don’t want or cider tasting like potpourri lol. Then just keep on warm until ready to serve. You can also add bourbon (or alcohol of choice) if you’d like—we like the brand Bulleit!
Let me know if y’all try this recipe!!
