Spicy Mulled Cider Recipe

Spicy Mulled Cider Recipe

A fragrant cider, warmed through with eleven festive spices


  • 4 litres of your favourite medium cider
  • 200ml brandy
  • 5 tbsp honey
  • 5 star anise
  • 5 pieces of lemon peel
  • 1 tsp all spice berries
  • 1 tsp blade mace
  • 4 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 vanilla pod, split
  • 1 tsp coriander seeds, lightly crushed
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp juniper berries
  • ½ tsp dried chilli flakes
  • ½ tsp cloves


  1. Pour the cider into a large saucepan then add all the ingredients.
  2. Warm over a gentle heat until just hot, but not simmering. Leave to sit at this gentle heat for 30 minutes until the spices have infused the cider, but the alcohol is still intact!
  3. Serve nice and hot.
  4. If you’re keeping it and serving it later, strain after 30 minutes unless you like a really strong flavour as the spices will continue to infuse the cider.
