Mulled Cider Warmer (Non-Alcoholic)

Hot mulled cider is so rewarding in the fall that it almost doesn't matter if there's alcohol in it at all. I mean, you really enjoy it for the seasonal apple flavor, the spices and the warmth. Of course if you were to throw a shot of whiskey in this, it wouldn't detract from the experience. But for me, it was a great sober Sunday afternoon drink fit for a chilly November.

This recipe makes for six servings, but can be adjusted accordingly.
  • 1 quart apple cider
  • 1 oz. honey
  • 1/4 tsp. ground allspice
  • 5 cardamom seeds
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 8 whole cloves
  • 1 tbsp. orange peels
  • 6 cinnamon stick
Combine all ingredients except cinnamon sticks in a saucepan and stir over high heat until the honey dissolves. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes or longer (covered). Pour into warmed coffee mugs and garnish with cinnamon sticks.
