Mulled Cranberry-Apple Cider

Becky Luigart-Stayner
Yield

8 servings (serving size: about 1 cup)

A swivel-bladed vegetable peeler works well for removing the orange peel. Be sure to remove only the colored part of the peel - which contains the flavorful oils - and no more; the white pith is bitter.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups cranberry juice cocktail
  • 4 cups apple cider or apple juice
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 5 (3 x 1-inch) strips orange rind
  • 8 whole cloves
  • 4 whole allspice
  • 2 (3-inch) cinnamon sticks, halved
  • 1 whole nutmeg
