Soothing Slow Cooker Drinks
Slow cookers are perfect for slow-simmered beverages like mulled ciders and for keeping hot beverages warm throughout a party or open house.
Spiced Caramel Cider
If you'd prefer a beverage with less spice, try substituting apple juice for the apple cider. It's fantastic either way.
Here's a refreshingly fruity mix of tea and lemonade that is delicious hot or cold--depending on the season. You can even spike it!

Hot Mulled Ginger-Spiced Cider

Easy Swedish Glögg
Glögg is a traditional Swedish holiday beverage in that's similar to wassail or mulled wine. Serving it directly from a slow cooker is a great way to keep the brew warm without overcooking it.
Spiced Pear Cider
Welcome autumn with a pear version of spiced apple cider that uses both pear juice and nectar. Cinnamon sticks, allspice, and cloves create an appealing aroma and flavor for the cider.
Spirited Hot Mocha
Add a spirited touch to this coffee-flavored hot chocolate with a splash of brandy. It's a great beverage to serve at a holiday open house, and you can serve it directly from the slow cooker. If you want a non-alcoholic version, just leave out the brandy.
Warm Homemade Lemonade
Tart and tangy warm lemonade is a refreshing departure from sweet fruit ciders and mulled wines. Some claim that a little warm lemonade with a spoonful of honey and a splash of whiskey is the sure cure for a sore throat!
