How to Make Cider Mull Recipe or Mulled Cider

Cider Mull Recipe Description

Cider Mull also called “Mulled Cider” is a special, Fall and Halloween drink. Did you ever notice a different taste from every cider mull you’ve ever had? That’s because everyone uses a different cider mull recipe. My family likes to use fresh cider and cinnamon sticks……and nothing else. Other people like to throw in “the works”. Some might suggest it is not truly Cider Mull unless you put all of the ingredients in.

We suggest that you experiment with different batches, to see what mix of ingredients you and your family prefers.

Note: Our recipe size is for two quarts. You can multiply the ingredients to make larger sizes for big families, Halloween parties, or special events. Or, cut it in half, if there are just a couple of you.

Did You Know? 100 apple varieties are grown commercially in the U.S. Just15 of those varieties make up 90% of total production. They are Red Delicious, Gala, Golden Delicious, Granny Smith, and Fuji.
