Mulled cider

Sometimes you just need a good adult drink. Well, I quite often need a good adult drink. For cozyness, or because your friends are coming over for game night, or because of the Christmas movie countdown with your family, or you got cute new glasses, or because the weather outside is frightful but the fire is so delightfulreally, any reason counts for me. After drinking what seemed like gallons of mulled wine over the past few weeks (‘Glühwein’ is very popular in Germany) I needed something different and lighter to top off the Christmas Puddinis. And, as you know, everything with apples are always a good pick. Light up the fireplace (or a candle) and let the cozy times begin.


1 bottle of your favorite cider (dry)
2 cinnamon sticks
3 star anise
4 cardamom capsules, crushed
4 cloves
1 tbsp. sugar
the zest and some slices of 1 orange (organic)
Cider, spices, sugar, zest and orange slices in a cooking pot over low heat, leave it, until warm but don’t let it boil. Done! 

You can vary the sugar as you like it. This drink is very light and barely has alcohol. But you could certainly add a splash of bourbon or rum to it, I won’t judge.
(Not to brag or anything, but how adorable is the mulled wine glasses set that I got in a thrift shop a few weeks back?! Love it!)
