Apple cider simmered with seasonal spices and spiked with rum is the perfect way to stay warm in the winter. This recipe combines fragrant mulling spices with our cider concentrate, a blend of freshly pressed juices of five Washington State apples.


  • 2 Tbs. mulling spices
  • 1 cup (8 fl. oz./250 ml) apple cider concentrate
  • 3 cups (24 fl. oz./750 ml) water
  • 3/4 cup (6 fl. oz./180 ml) golden or dark rum
  • 4 cinnamon sticks (optional)


Put the mulling spices in a spice ball.

In a large pot over medium-high heat, combine the apple cider concentrate and water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, add the spice ball and gently simmer for 20 minutes.

Pour 1 1/2 fl. oz. (45 ml) rum into each of 4 warmed mugs. Top each with 1 cup (8 fl. oz./250 ml) spiced cider and add a cinnamon stick. Serve immediately. Serves 4.
