Advice- Halve this recipe if you’re serving for less than 10 people

1 gallon/4.5 litres of Tricky Cider (Our Medium Dry Cider works very well with this recipe!)
½ cups Brown Sugar
2 teaspoons of Allspice
6-8 Cloves, Whole
2 Star Anise Stars
1/2 a Vanilla pod
4 sticks Cinnamon
2 dashes of Nutmeg
1 whole Orange, Cut into slices.

  • Pour the yummy Tricky Cider into your favourite cosy mug, and then stir in the brown sugar.
  • Using a muslin bag, place the Allspice, Star Anise, Vanilla pod,  cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg. Carefully fold up the coffee filter, making sure none of the spices can fall out. Tie up with butcher’s twine and place into the cider.
  • Place the orange slices into the Tricky cider, squeeze a bit to let some of the juice out. Cover and heat on low for several hours before guests arrive, or can be heated on high for an hour or two until it’s hot enough and then turn the heat down to low.
  • Keep spice bag and orange slices in the cider the entire time.
