There’s nothing better this time of year than a nice hot cup of spiced cider. Here is a super easy, slow cooker apple cider recipe with only 5 ingredients! It only takes minutes to prepare and it’s fool proof. I think this cider recipe is the perfect amount of sweetness and spice. I like to use this Cuisinart Multi Cooker for all my slow cooker recipes. You’re going to love this one, plus…wink wink, I’ve got a few fun variations for you to try below.
Slow Cooker Apple Cider
- 1 gallon cider
- 1 orange, sliced
- 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 6 cinnamon sticks
- 2 tbs whole cloves
- Place apple cider and brown sugar in slow cooker and stir to combine. Add sliced orange, cinnamon sticks, and cloves.
- Cook on low 3-4 hours. To serve, ladle into cups and garnish with oranges and cinnamon sticks.
BLACK TEA APPLE CIDER – Ladle cider into a cup, add a black tea bag, and steep 3-5 minutes.
CHILLED APPLE CIDER – Refrigerate and serve over ice for a refreshing twist on this drink. Perfect on a warmer day.
SPIKED APPLE CIDER – Ladle cider into cup and add the liquor of your choice. The best options are bourbon, brandy, or dark aged rum. We used a dark aged rum and it was delicious. The amount you add is up to you.
APPLE CIDER WITH PORT WINE – My favorite! Ladle cider into cup and add port using a 2:1 ratio of cider to port.
