Who isn't intrigued by the idea of a cup of mulled cider on a chilly winter night? Ordered one in a bar, but never prepared one at home? Here is a simple-to-make recipe for the virgins among us.

Ingredients

  • 1 quart apple cider
  • 1 orange, thinly sliced
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 6 cloves
  • 3 whole allspice berries
  • 1/2 cup of dark brown sugar
  • 1 inch-long piece of ginger root (optional)
  • 1 star anise (optional)
  • Rum or brandy to taste (optional)

Directions

Bring all of the ingredients, excluding the alcohol, to a boil. (We like to put the spice in a tea strainer or cheesecloth for easy removal).

Serve right away or let sit for a day or two in the refrigerator to deeply infuse the flavor.
