Mulled Cider

Yields8 Servings

If you want to fill your home with the scent of Christmas this mulled cider recipe certainly will and also provides a delicious drink. Fruity with mellow notes of spices and very easily drank. It can be a welcoming change to the ubiquitous glass of mulled wine that is forced upon guest as they enter any Christmas party. I have nothing against mulled wine, in fact I do rather enjoy a glass.
If you require an alcohol free version swap the cider for apple juice and simply omit the sugar as the apple juice should be sweet enough.
