MULLED SPICED ORANGECIDER

about 4 to 6 servings

 

  • 2 cups each apple cider and orange juice
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar or the equivalent of ¼ cup brown sugar in granulated brown sugar substitute
  • Pinch of salt
  • ½ teaspoon whole allspice
  • ¼ teaspoon whole cloves
  • 1½ inches stick cinnamon, broken
  • Cheesecloth and kitchen twine (see note)
  • 4 to 6 whole cinnamon sticks as stirrers
  • Orange slices or half slices (studded with whole cloves, if desired) for garnish (optional)

In a large heavy saucepan, combine apple cider, orange juice, brown sugar, and salt, blending well.  Tie spices in cheesecloth with kitchen twine; add spice bag to cider mixture.  Bring mixture to a boil over moderate heat; reduce heat slightly, cover,  and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes.  Remove spice bag. 

 Serve hot in mugs or may chill in a glass container, tightly covered, until ready to serve chilled.  Add a cinnamon stick to each serving as a stirrer.  May also garnish each serving with an orange slice or half slice, if desired

May decrease amount of brown sugar, if desired.
