National Hot Mulled Cider Day

Today is National Hot Mulled Cider Day! Hot mulled cider is a delicious drink perfectly suited for crisp September afternoons. Apple cider is produced using a cider press and is a time-honored favorite of the autumn season.

To make mulled cider, slowly add brown sugar to apple cider in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir until all the sugar has dissolved. Add other ingredients such as nutmeg, allspice, orange juice, and lemon juice, and bring to a boil. Strain out the spices, pour into a mug, and add a cinnamon stick.

Enjoy National Hot Mulled Cider Day as you sip on your homemade brew!

  1. Sounds delicious! Anybody planning on brewing up a batch to share?

  2. Bob Ryan says:

    Not a lot of people realize how important cider, cold, mulled, fermented, or any other fashion, was to the growth and economy of our nation. How else would 77 militiamen get up the courage to face the worlds best military at Lexington and Concord. On cable TV Mike Row is currently hosting a three or four part whimsical look at how Booze plays a role in the history of America. Again “Whimsical”, but interesting.
