Hot Mulled Cider

From Sarah Voiland, 2014 apple cider lemon tea

1/2 gallon local cider
2 cinnamon sticks (or 1 tsp cinnamon)
1/2 tsp allspice
8 whole cloves
A few slices fresh ginger
1/2 orange, thinly sliced in rounds
nutmeg or cinnamon to garnish

Each spice is optional really, as hot cider itself is very good too. You can use lemon in place of orange, but half the amount, check for sweetness, and add honey if desired. Bring to a simmer until fragrant. Pour into cups, aiming for a slice of orange in each. Garnish with fresh grated nutmeg or cinnamon.

If you want a kick, add some whiskey or rum after you’ve poured your cup.
