  • 8 cups apple cider

  • 2 cinnamon sticks

  • 6 whole cloves

  • 4 allspice berries

  • 1 orange, thinly sliced

  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar (adjust to taste)

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)


  • In a large pot, pour the apple cider and add the cinnamon sticks, whole cloves, and allspice berries. Stir gently.

  • Place the pot over medium heat and slowly bring the cider to a simmer. Be careful not to boil it; you want it to be hot but not scorching.

  • Once the cider is simmering, add the thinly sliced orange and lemon to the pot.

  • Stir in the brown sugar, adjusting the amount to your desired sweetness. You can add more or less sugar based on your taste preferences.

  • Allow the cider to simmer gently for about 15-20 minutes. This will infuse the flavors of the spices and citrus into the cider.

  • If you'd like to add a touch of vanilla flavor, stir in the vanilla extract just before serving. It's optional but adds a lovely depth of flavor.

  • Remove the pot from the heat and strain the spiced apple cider into mugs or heatproof glasses to remove the whole spices and citrus slices.


  • Customization: Feel free to add other spices like star anise or nutmeg for extra depth of flavor. For an adult version, consider adding a splash of rum or bourbon.
  • Storage: Leftover cider can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat gently on the stove before serving.
  • Serving Suggestions: Garnish each cup with a cinnamon stick, a slice of apple, or a twist of orange peel for a festive presentation.
  • Adjusting Sweetness: You can adjust the sweetness by adding more or less brown sugar or using honey or maple syrup as alternatives.
  • Aromatic Appeal: This recipe not only tastes great but also makes your home smell wonderful, creating a cozy holiday atmosphere.
