Hot Caramel Spiced Cider

This is one of my families favorites. We make this every year during the holidays. The cider is good with or without the caramel and whipped cream.


We keep adding cider all day long when it starts to get low. You can add 2 cans of canned apple juice concentrate if cider is unavailable. I usually stock up a few gallons of apple juice or cider before the holidays so we don't run out.

  1. 1 gallon apple cider or apple juice
  2. 2 Tbsp. cinnamon
  3. 1/2 Tbsp. nutmeg
  4. 1/2 tsp. cardamom
  5. caramel syrup
  6. whipped cream
  7. orange slices (optional)

Put 1 gallon of cider in a crock pot or large pot. Add spices. Heat it up until it is hot but not boiling. Once hot leave it on low heat with a ladle for serving. Add orange slices to pretty it up. Makes a nice warm beverage for the holidays.

Add a little caramel syrup to each cup, stir well and top with whipping cream. This gives it an apple pie taste.

My family likes this because it gives them something warm to drink in the evening other than coffee or eggnog. We started drinking it because we like what Starbuck's served and tried to replicate it at home. This is every bit as good.
