Party-Sized Apple Cider

Dear Caitlin,

We’re a little late for apple cider, admittedly.  But my Twitter/Facebook feeds are bursting with how cold it is outside, so, I think this works.  Apple cider should be ok whenever it’s cold out.

Or, if you live in South Texas, whenever you think it should be cold out.  The polar vortex brought us down to 35, which isn’t my fave, but it seems unfair to complain about it.


Pre-made apple cider is expensive, and there’s just no reason for that to be the case.  I put together this apple cider using store-brand apple juice and spices that I had on hand.  It makes a suitable dinner or party contribution.  It serves 10-12.  And it cost less than $2.  So, without further ado, I bring you party-sized apple cider.


It also smells amazing.  Small bonus.


64 oz. of 100% Apple Juice (when adding spices or other liquid to juice, it’s best to use 100%)
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1 Tablespoon Honey
1 Tablespoon Ground Cinnamon
1/4 Teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
1/4 Teaspoon Ground Cloves
(1) Empty Apple Juice into Soup Pot
(2) Add Vanilla Extract and Honey
(3) Add Spices
(4) Heat on medium.  When fully heated, turn temperature to low.
