      Hey Megan! I know — isn’t it the cutest little snowman mug? When I saw them at the store, I knew they would be perfect for my hot apple cider :)

    I will be trying this out…as I love apple cider.

    Congrats on the bun in the oven :) The apple cider looks fab. We were recently in NYC and my bf fell in love with hot apple cider at the markets we frequented. Must make it for him when Winter comes round for us!

    Just did this cider for a party and it was the hit! Only change I made was I added a couple slices of lemon. After taking out the apple/orange/etc, I left it on the stove on low during the party and although it thickened up a tad by the very end, it stayed hot and was great tasting. People added AppleJack Brandy if they wanted a kick. I will use this recipe every year now.

    This looks very delicious and simple, I was just wondering how much it is likely to make? I really only want to do a small batch to test it out as my husband is very picky!

    Thanks :)

      It makes a good 6-8 servings. You can try cutting the recipe in half to see how it goes. Good luck!

        Thank you! I made it last night – it was delicious and mr picky loved it! I added extra apples so I could eat them as poached apples afterwards – it worked out perfectly :)

    I made this today with my children for our trip to the local farm and pumpkin patch! The kids LOVE the cider! It will become our damn tradition every year!

    My wife and I are having an ‘Autumn Gathering’ at our house this evening and greatly looking forward to using your recipe! Yours by far, looks like the best I could find – Thanks for posting! Also, Kelli (above) had a fabulous suggestion with the Apple Brandy; we’ll have that on standby!

    This looks great! Are the oranges and lemons super required? I would love to not go to the store for the third time..! :)

      While you can definitely make the cider without the oranges, they do add a really nice flavor an depth to the drink. If it were me, I would want them…but you’re welcome to try without them and see! It should still be tasty. :)

    Just made this for our Holiday Party – we loved it! I added a couple of lemon slices and also a peeled piece of ginger. It looks so pretty simmering on the stove so I left the fruit in longer too.

    Hello! I tired out your recipe at a little get together with some friends and it was a huge hit! I’m going to use it at my family’s big Christmas eve party, hopefully it will go over well there too!

    If I have some left over, can it be refrigerated and reheated?
