Mulled Wine with Cider


With the cool crisp air and family and friends in constant rotation at home throughout the holidays, having a steaming pot of mulled wine with cider at the ready is a must! It’s fruity without being overly sweet and will warm you to the core in no time. 

Yield: 6 cups

Oven: N/A

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Add To Cart

1 (750ml) bottle red wine, like Cabernet Sauvignon

4 cups apple cider

1 cinnamon stick

1 tablespoon whole cloves, place in spice catcher/holder

2 small oranges, quartered then cut in half  


1. In a large pot over low – medium heat, add wine, apple cider, cinnamon stick, and cloves.

2. Bring to a boil then reduce to low.  Allow to simmer, while occasionally stirring, for 15 – 20 minutes and flavors have fully developed. 

3. Ladle mulled wine with a few pieces of orange to finish.  For a little “kick,” see the Kitchen Note below. Note: Do not serve spices as they are not edible.


Kitchen Note:  Brandy gives the mulled wine a nice “kick.” If desired, add a splash to each glass right before serving.
