Hot Spiced Cider Recipe

Posted by on Nov 11, 2012 in Drinks, Entertaining, Holidays, Recipes | 0 comments

It’s a beautiful snowy day here in Salt Lake City and for once I’m actually okay with this white stuff in November. Usually fall lasts for about a week or two in October squished between blazing heat and instant winter, but since we actually had a full, crisp autumn, watching snowflakes fall is actually making me quite cheery.

Which means it’s the perfect time for spiced cider! It mixes the flavors of fall with the cozy feeling of winter. And the smell you get wafting through the house is divine. It almost makes me want to put up Christmas decorations, but I’ll wait a little bit. ;)


64 oz apple juice
4 cinnamon sticks
8 strips tangerine zest
8 cloves
2 tsp ginger, minced
2 tbsp honey


In a medium saucepan, combine all ingredients and simmer over low heat. Remove from heat and let it soak for 30 minutes. Strain and serve.
