Countdown to Hallowe'en // Mulled Cider

One of my absolute favourite autumnal traditions, is making mulled cider - and later on as it gets even colder, mulled wine. 

Served warm, with a stick of cinnamon, mulled cider is a seasonal treat which makes the most of the abundant apple harvests here in the UK at this time of year. 

The recipe is really simple - for every 500 ml of cider (I use dry, rather than sweet), add about 100 ml of apple juice to sweeten it up, a teaspoon of ground mixed spice, a teaspoon of ground cinnamon, four or five cloves and a stick of cinnamon. 

Heat the whole mixture through but don't allow to boil.

Enjoy steaming in a big mug and cuddle up under a blanket.

Oh thanks so much for sharing this recipe. :) Mulled cider is just perfect this time of year. Although it has been 80 degrees here for the past two days...I am ready for chilly weather!

Oh yum! I've always loved mulled cider. Must head to the local farm stand to buy some of their fresh-pressed cider this weekend!
