How to Make Hot Mulled Apple Cider Punch

ApplesWhat could be better than sitting down on cold day to some Hot Mulled Cider?

Doesn’t that just sound like one of the most comfy, cozy of moments? Maybe warmed by a fire in the Fall or Winter…

What a better way to start your evening upon returning home from your day to a hot mug of cider, and shake off your cares of the world.

OR wouldn’t it be wonderful if upon arrival to a dinner party, you are greeted with a cuppa of this warmed delight…Whetting your appetite for a hearty meal of stew or or roast beef?

A favorite beverage of mine.

Type: Beverage Recipe

Serve with: cinnamon sticks, thin slice apple, alcohol
Prep Time: 15 min
Serves: 12 guests


  • 1 gallon apple cider
  • 3 apples
  • cloves
  • peppercorns
  • cinnamon sticks – optional
  • thin slices fresh apple – perhaps a Cortland or a Spy variety
  • lemon juice – to lightly coat apple slices for garnish
  • alcohol – optional; light or dark rum recommended


  1. Heat the apple cider in a pot on your stove top.
  2. Serve in a large punch bowl with a few apples studded with some cloves & peppercorns, as well as some lone cinnamon sticks left to float in the bowl.
  3. Each little cup of spiced goodness garnished simply with a thin slice of fresh Fall apple lightly coated with lemon juice to keep them from browning. * Tip: Try dipping these apple slices in a cinnamon sugar combination and garnish. Ooh, la la!

Place the punch bowl amid an armful of Fall flowers like asters, chrysanthemums, straw flowers or even sunflower…very Fall-esque!

Beautiful to look at, and so hearty & delicious to drink.

Hot Spiced Lemonade:

Hot Lemonade spiced in similar fashion is always a hit too, and keeps everyone warm & agreeable.
