We’ve all tried mulled wine at Christmas, but have you ever sipped on a glass of warm spiced mulled cider on a crisp autumn evening? The perfect tipple to serve at Bonfire Night celebrations, all you need to create this delicious sharing drink is one of our casserole dishes, why not try cast iron?
One of the great things about this recipe is that it’s such a simple one to pull together and can be left simmering on the hob to allow for top-ups throughout the night. The key thing is to leave plenty of time for the spices and fruits to infuse but be warned, the fragrance that fills your home as it mulls is incredibly tempting and will really test your willpower!
To keep hands cool as you sip on this warming tipple, we recommend serving in our stylish double walled glassware. Not only will they keep your drink warmer for longer, they look great with an orange or apple slice garnish and maybe even a cinnamon stick for good measure.
To keep spillage to a minimum, we recommend using a ladle to neatly spoon your cider into your glassware. If hosting guests, it’ll make it easy for them to serve themselves throughout the evening allowing you the time to catch up with friends.
