The cold weather brings in its own menu of food and drinks like this mulled cider beverage. These holiday drinks of mulled cider and apple juice are great to warm your insides after a tough day at the mall, coming in from the first fall of snow or just sitting around the house relaxing.
Apple Cider Cocktails
Over the years cider has been consumed as a main beverage, in households across the US, consuming 2 gallons per person each year. We see this drink on tables in the form of apple juice and we hear the popping of corks during a celebration with a sparkling cider cocktail.
Apple juices are generally made from pressing juice apples in comparison to cider apples. The apple and cider juice colors range from a light hue of gold to a deeper amber color with its flavor just as intense as the colors.
Mulled refers to the heating or cooking of the liquids used in making this beverage and cocktail. If you look across the globe, we see several versions of hot cider drinks from many countries and cultures to family favorites. Some of the favorite recipes in our house use apple juice, which is a nonalcoholic recipe that makes a delicious and warming drink that should be enjoyed during our Christmas holiday season.
These drinks are great to serve at any time for most anyone.
For those who like a bit more bite in their drinks there are a cider cocktail recipes using rum or brandy and other liquors. It is just as warming and meant to be enjoyed sitting around the fireplace with friends and family during the holidays. With some of these recipes, you will find delicious cinnamon sticks and even quartered oranges with cloves into the oranges, adding even more flavor to these heated cocktails.
These mulled apple cider cocktails are easy to make and will fill the house with aromas of fruit, cloves and cinnamon while it’s brewing on your stove or in your crockpot.
