Mulled Cranberry Apple Cider

It is CHILLY here today! Hooray! The perfect day to make some fresh cider on the stove & curl up…& blog? Well, sort of. Or package & ship a bunch of stylebabyLOGs. :) I’m getting them out! Promise!

This easy & comforting recipe is a big hit whenever I make it over the holidays & it is so simple. Bonus: the house smells DELICIOUS when you get it going on the stove. So at the request of many, here is my wintery non-caffeinated drink of choice!


Adapted from HERE

Yield: 10-12 servings, depending on the size of your mugs


  • 8 cups Cranberry Juice
  • 6 cups unfiltered Apple Cider (the good stuff, that needs refrigeration)
  • 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 3 Cinnamon Sticks
  • 1 TBSP Whole Cloves (I wrap mine in cheesecloth while mulling)


  • add all ingredients to a pot on the stove, stir & bring to a boil.
  • Cover & turn down to a simmer;  simmer for about an hour. Leave it on low after that. Crack the lid to make the house smell dreamy. :)
  • Top with whipped cream, if desired.
