Homemade Mulled Apple Cider (With Vanilla and Nutmeg)

This is quite possibly the best homemade, hot, spiced apple cider you will ever make! This delicious, homemade beverage recipe was given to me by a friend with full permission and posting rights for my blog, etc. This was served at a post-Thanksgiving Shabbat dinner along with some tasty appetizers. It was amazing! CHEF NOTES: For the cook-time, please judge for yourself on how long it takes for your pot of choice to boil. The time I've selected here (20 minutes) is approximate, but not certain. Some people own tea straining contraptions that you can boil your spices inside. If you have one of these, you can use it.


  • Prep Time : 5 min
  • Cook Time : 20 min
  • Ready Time : 25 min


About 8 8oz Servings


  • 1/2 gal cider or apple juice
  • 1 orange or tangerine
  • Cloves
  • Cinnamon
  • Nutmeg
  • 1/2 a cap or less pure vanilla extract (optional)


Pour cider into pot.

Zest the peel of the orange with a cheese grater. If you can’t zest, squeeze 1/8 – 1/4 orange and drop slice into pot to boil in with ingredients.

Add a small amount of each spice into the pot. If you have coffee filters or empty tea bags (or other porous material you can boil in high temperatures), use these to hold the spices inside. You can tie the coffee filter and let it sink to the bottom. Otherwise, you may want to strain your cider before serving.

Once the cider has reached a rolling boil, you are done!

Garnish with sliced apples.
