Hot Spiced Cider Reviews

  • Do yourself a favor and omit the brown sugar from this recipe. I have a sweet tooth, but the sugar in this cider is unnecessary. It left a film on my teeth I cant get off even after brushing twiceThat said, the spices and flavor of the cider were wonderful. I didnt have any problems with my coffee maker, either. Although, I think it would be easier to do as others suggested and make it on the stovetop or slow cooker. I love the orange in it. Will make again with no added sugar.

  • I made this recipe in a larg pot on the stove and skipped the step of putting everything throught the coffee maker. I wish I hadnt skipped that step. It smelled wonderful while on the stove, and the first few cups were good (or so I was told) but when I finally had a chance to get a cup, it had a very strong flavor. Maybe the cloves or one of the other spices, but I think if I would have removed all of the spices from the pot after the first 20 minutes, then it would have just kept warm and the flavor wouldnt have been so strong. I served mine with a dollop of whipped cream on top of each mug. I will make again, but follow the recipe exactly.

  • Very good I made it in the crock pot using a coffee filter and a piece of ribbon to keep the spices in.

  • What is wrong with my family? Nobody wanted to even try this unbelievable concoction. Great All the more for me. How can one drink be refreshing, comforting, spicy, and sweet at the same time? Somehow, Hot Spiced Cider gits er done. This will be traditional Christmas fare for me. I can see myself rounding up the ingredients for this recipe whenever the snow starts to fly. I used my slow cooker. I wrapped the spices in a coffee filter and tied it with a rubberband. I turned the slow cooker to the "high" setting until it was hot enough, then lowered it to "warm." I dont particularly enjoy the clove flavor which can be somewhat dominant, so I may reduce or eliminate that spice the next time around. Still wonderful though.

  • WAY too sweet as written... be sure to decrease the amount of sugar. Many people dumped their servings at a recent get together. I made it in the crockpot and will likely try it again with no sugar.

  • Excellent I love apple cider and this recipe was really easy to make and really good. I left out the allspice because I dont have any on hand, and also made it on the stove top instead of the coffee maker. I just put all the spices in a tea strainer and that worked fine. I like that I can just put this back in the apple cider jug and reheat it as we go

  • This was very easy, and very good. I did make this in my coffee maker the first time, and initially thought it worked fine, until my husband tried to use the machine to make coffee. It was clogged with what we believed to be burnt sugar, and he took it apart and spent a lot of time cleaning it before it finally worked again. The next time I made it in a big pot, and that worked fine. I tied the spices up inside a coffee filter. I didnt end up using a whole orange (used about half of a huge one), and used ground allspice rather than whole, but followed the recipe other than that.

  • VERY popular recipe for us Like others, I opted for a slow cooker instead of the coffe maker. Just tossed everything in, set it on low, and let it warm for a few hours. I cut the brown sugar in half, as I thought it would have enough flavor without more sugar. It was perfect.

  • Yum I used less brown sugar (about 1 TBSP less) and nearly 12 cups of apple cider because we dont like things too sweet, and it was great. We had a little left over, so the next day I warmed up 8 oz. and poured it over a green tea bag. I never enjoyed green tea so much

  • I used apple juice instead of apple cider--I grabbed the wrong bottle at the store this week. The oranges I used were clementines, mine were small so I used two. I made this on the stove only because I dont have a regular coffee pot anymore. This is AMAZING. So warm, spicy and comforting. We all just love it. I saved a little in the fridge for tonight to warm up with a little cinnamon whisky. VERY GOOD.

  • I hosted a Christmas party last night and this was a hit. I made it per the directions in a slow cooker. I bought the least expensive unsweetened cider (in the juice isle). At first, I did not use the brown sugar per others suggestions after tasting, I deemed it needed it. I have a feeling had I purchased the cold cider for twice the price I would not have needed the sugar. Save yourself the money and buy the inexpensive/unsweetened and add the sugar. FINALLY and this is key have a bottle of BUTTERSCOTCH SNCHAPPS on hand. Guests can add a shot per cup...this was a HUGE HIT At the end of the evening I poured the remainder back in the jug to use again tonight (Christmas Eve) and I will be certain to add the schnapps to my cup YUMMY

  • This was yummy. I made it in my crockpot.. put it on high for 3 hours as recommended previously. I put the spices in the coffee filters and tied them shut with rubber bands, then let them float in with the cider and orange slices. One thing to note... 2 qts of cider will give you about 6 mugs of cider. I had to go out and buy another 2 qts for my 12 person party.

  • It was very sweet, so you might want to forgo the brown sugar. I served this up last christmas and had quite a bit left over. It just didnt WOW us.

  • WOW I used my coffee maker, and had to make this twice in one night The four of us just kept drinking it and drinking it. It was so good. Everything blended so well, I never tasted any one ingredient as overpowering, it was a perfect blend. The only thing was that I washed my entire coffee maker out before and after making this drink. It was worth it I liked that it was fast and ready, just like a cup of coffee. Encellent Thank you so much for this recipe.

  • Very Good Doubled the recipe and only used one orange. Did this in a crock pot and it worked fine. Just dont leave the spices in too long

  • Very awesome I did my cider in a slow cooker with the spices in a coffee filter hanging in from the edge. Added cinnamon sticks and they were a hit with my Christmas party The orange was only slightly overpowering for me, but Im not a huge fan of oranges and everyone else loved it :D

  • This is as good as the Biltmore House Wassail mix,(which i was having withdrawals from until I found this recipe) Nothing is better on cold winters night than to snuggle up with along with a good book or movie and a cup of this.

  • Wonderful treat for a snowy night in the texas tropics I have a special coffee maker just for this recipe. Recipe is great for a party or gathering of friends where you dont to spend time with preparation. I didnt have whole spices noted, and it worked well with ground form. ENJOY

  • Used a crock pot and borrowed another reviewers suggestion to bundle the spices in a coffee filter secured with a rubberband. It was delicious, definitely the recipe Ill be using from now on

  • FANTASTIC It was most definately a big hit. We had extra cider in the fridge so we decided to make this completly last minute for Thanksgiving. Since our coffee pot recently died, we made this on the stovetop and it worked just fine. I also had to substitute ground cinnamon and ground allspice since that is all we had on hand. And then we just lined a strainer with a coffee filter and strained it through that before serving. It was still completely FABULOUS Were making it again for our upcoming holiday party. Im so glad i finally found a good spiced cider recipe :)

  • This was my first attempt at spiced cider and it turned out fabulous. I followed the recipe as stated but I did not use the coffee pot. I put the brown sugar and cider in a pan and heated it to boiling to dissolve the sugar completely. I poured this into my crockpot. I tied the spices in a coffee filter as others have suggested and put that along with sliced oranges in the cider. I turned it to warm about 2 hours before my guests arrived and it was perfect. I kept the spices and fruit in the cider all evening and I thought the flavor got better and better. Thanks for a great recipe.

  • I love this recipe The aroma is wonderful, it calls for cozy pjs on a snowy night by the fireplace Or a festive hot drink at a holiday bash, very versatile. I use an electric coffee percolator and just put the ingredients in the metal basket. It works perfect No messy coffee pot to have to clean up or degunk. The whole spices stay in the basket and never float around in the drink.

  • I served this at our office Christmas party and everyone loved it. I simmered it in a pan on the stove and then kept it hot in a crock pot. I left the cinnamon sticks in it and it smelled and tasted wonderful

  • I made this but added a LOT of rum. Lets say it was the "life" of my holiday party I left it in the crock pot and it smelled divine. So tasty....

  • Cider is delicous BUT I do suggest if you decide to make it in a coffee pot then its worth going to your discount store and buying a cheap USD10.00 pot just for this. If you make it often during the holiday season it will be worth your purchase BECAUSE it will ruin your pot. Everything tastes like cider and your cider has a slight coffe taste.....no matter how many times you run water through...before or after.

  • We made this in a crockpot and drained it before serving and then put it back in the crockpot to keep it warm. It was incredibly popular and the orange slices were so yummy that instead of throwing them out we added them to our mugs. Theres no cider where we live so I had to make it with 100% apple juice and it was still amazing. Thanks

  • I used this recipe for a corporate event, and there was more commentary on the cider than the cookies we had spent hundreds of dollars on. Its wonderful

  • I made this for Thanksgiving. It was a big hit Super easy. I used ground allspice because I couldnt find whole allspice.

  • I used this as a base recipe, however when I made it the second time this fall it was much better. I opted for the slow cooker because I wanted it to keep warm throughout. the second time I left the brown sugar out and subsituded the orange for a lemon...way nice...had a light taste.

  • I am not a fan of cider but my husband loves it. This is the recipe we use all the time. It is so easy and quick and I love the way it makes the house smell in the winter Ive made it with apple juice instead of cider and my husband loves it that way as well. Thanks for this recipe.

  • I made this cider in a crockpot. I doubled the amount of everything except the sugar and i thought it was perfect I did not have cinnamon sticks so i used ground cinnamon in its place-guessed at the amount. I turned the crockpot on high and let it heat for approximately 3-3 1/2 hours. This will be a regular for my family this fall and winter.

  • This is excellent I made this at the last family get-together and everyone loved it. Its so easy and it makes your house smell wonderful. Thanks for the great and easy recipe (I never would have thought of making cider in my coffee maker).

  • This was very tasty. I didnt use my coffee maker but instead used a pot on the stove. I would suggest putting the whole spices in a cheesecloth tied with string or a coffee filter as another reviewer suggested. Very nice and warming on a cold winters day

  • We loved this I used a crockpot to warm the cider and wrapped the ingredients in cheese cloth instead of placing in a coffee pot. Worked great and I plan on making it in the future.

  • I have been making this for years I got the recipe from the Gooseberry Patch recipe book. I can see how some might think it to be too sweet but you can easily dilute it with more cider. I think it is perfect. Just be sure to run clear water through your coffee pot a couple times afterwards to clean it out. Happy Holidays

  • This was so good I made it on the stove top. I put all of the spices in a cheese cloth and floated the oranges and cinnamon sticks. I also put in a few extra cinnamon sticks. This was sooooo good I simmered it on low for 4 or so hours.

  • A wonderfully delicious recipe. I mixed the ingredients and simmered in a pot over the stovetop, and it came out delicious. It won over a group that included both apple cider lovers and newbies alike.

  • My mother-in-law makes the best hot cider. Short of asking her for her recipe, I decided to take my chances and find my own recipe. I found exaclty what I was looking for This cider is excellent; a great addition to our company Christmas carry-in. It was a hit I used my crockpot instead of the coffee pot. I put it on "high" for 3 hours and turned to the "warm" setting to keep it at the right temperature. Thanks for the recipe

  • We made this in the coffee maker and it tasted WONDERFUL. However, this recipe would be better if you can make it with a coffee maker in which you can wash all of the parts. I used a typical plug-in coffee maker, and spent 2 - 3 hours cleaning out the resovoir where the water usually goes. (I felt very blonde for not considering this before. I am naturally blonde, but still felt silly) The apple cider that was in there was VERY sticky, and I didnt want my coffee to have apple flavor in it. I will try it on the stove or slow cooker next time.

  • I made this on the stove top with a gallon of apple cider. I used 2 cinnamon sticks and maybe 1-1/2 tsp cloves. After reading the other reviews, I also reduced the brown sugar from 1/4 cup to maybe 3 or 4 tablespoons. It turned out awesome The entire pot was gone in a couple hours. I do agree with previous reviewers the bottom of the pot was really strong, and Im not sure how to change that, but I will definitely be making this again

  • The sugar made it waay to sweet, but without it the recipe is delish Makes the house smell like Autumn

  • I was happy to find a cider that you could make in a coffee pot. People at my party could not get enough of this cider It worked perfect in a 30 cup coffee maker and did not leave any messy clean up inside the coffee pot. Many people requested the recipe. The cider had a hint of orange to it that made it taste wonderful. Thank you for the perfect recipe

  • DeliciousAltered recipe a bit so I could cook it in the crock pot...Added orange juice because thats how Ive always had it.Got many compliments

  • I cant keep enough apple cider in the house. We found cider without sediment, so it was nice and clear. We put the spices in coffee filter so that wasnt floating in there either. We replaced the orange with 1/3 cup no pulp orange juice and cooked it all in the crockpot for about 3 hours. Its delicious, and my teenagers make it themselves because they love it too. Very, very good

  • This was really great, but the second time I made it I left out the sugar, because with it its is too sweet...and with out it, its perfection

  • Very delicious I made it in a crock pot left on high for 20 minutes. To infuse the spices I emptied out a tea bag and places the spices inside. I then tied it up with a piece of thread. I didnt use the orange. Came out perfect Definitely will make this again

  • I tried this for an office party and I did use the coffee maker. It couldnt have been easier or more delicious It is now almost February and I still make it at least twice a week at work instead of coffee.

  • Great Christmas party drink. We had this at our annual ornament exchange and it was spiced very nicely. I didnt add any sugar because I like the natural flavor of apple juice. Sugar wasnt necessary at all. Everyone loved it

  • Made on the stovetop & substituted ground cloves & allspice -- and it turned out wonderful Will definitely make again.

  • This tasted great, but I dont think the sugar was really necessary, and cleaning out the coffee pot afterwards is quite a task. Ill probably make this again next fall or winter, but without the sugar, and might try it in the crock pot.

  • So good....perfect to have on hand this Halloween for neighbors who stopped by Everyone loved it. I just made it on the stovetop and filtered thru a fine sieve before serving. I skipped the brown sugar, tho, and it was plenty sweet

  • I did not care for the orange. It gave the cider a strange taste.

  • Big hit at the party and lots left over( I made a LOT) so Im still enjoying it. This was a great and easy recipe. Was way too skeptical to try in the coffee pot, so I made in the crockpot with all spices in the coffee filter tied with a rubber band. Worked great. Will definitely make again, party or no party, its a keeper. p.s. added a touch of rum and re-heated after party was over for a nice hot spiked drink. Quite nice.

  • I just made this on Thanksgiving and it was a huge hit. I have tried a few recipes in the past and my whole family said this was the best one. I put it in the crockpot with everything in a coffee filter tied with a rubberband (like others suggested)and put the orange and cinnamon stick in floating around. It worked great and was delicious. If you have a white crockpot, you will really have to scrub at it to get it clean..maybe spray it with a little bit of cooking spray beforehand? Thanks for the recipe

  • This recipe ROCKED None of the stores had apple cider in stock so I ended up with regular apple juice. I heard it was a little on the sweet side so I doubled the spices, added another quart of apple juice (about half a bottle), but kept the brown sugar (and orange, cut up into 6ths to fit better into the filter basket) the same. My coffee maker only makes 12 "cups" of coffee at a time, so I just filled it up, emptied it into a carafe, then refilled the reservoir with the remaining apple juice. BTW, even with my additional apple juice, this recipe barely satisfied 6 people (there were lots of seconds and thirds...). I had to make another batch to keep them happy. **BE AWARE** This has the potential to CLOG your coffeemaker if you let it sit overnight without cleaning it After your last brewing, dump the cider into a carafe or other storage vessel and run hot water or vinegar through your coffee maker IMMEDIATELY It may take a few runs for the water to run clear, but its better than replacing your coffee maker or giving this AMAZING recipe less than its deserved 5 stars

  • I really enjoyed this recipe. I used apple juice instead of cider and didnt add the brown sugar; it was definitely sweet enough, so I recommend you use the brown sugar to taste. Also, I made this on the stove rather than in a coffee pot. Ill definitely make this again.

  • The best spiced cider Ive tasted yet For large crowds (10+), youll want to make on the stove top so you can double the recipe. I heated it on the stove, then transferred to my crock pot to keep warm and free up my stovetop. It disappeared quickly

  • A wonderful alternative to alcoholic beverages and coffee. Easy to prepare and it made my house smell wonderful. Will be fixing it next time I have a gathering in the winter for sure.

  • Very yummy. I like to tie sugar and spices in cheese cloth then put it into my crock pot, then I add cider that has already been warmed on the stove. It makes the house smell wonderful. Thanks

  • I made this in the crockpot b/c all the notes about it ruining coffeemakers scared me. It turned out okay, but didnt seem spicy enough. One change Ill make next time is to heat it on the stove first, strain out the allspice & cloves and then put in a crockpot. Its best not to gag your guests with whole spices :)

  • This stuff is fantastic Take it from an old NAVY man who knows his drinks, it dont come much better than this on a cold winters evening

  • This is the very best hot cider recipe I made it in my coffee maker, then brought it to work and kept it hot in a crock pot all day. The whole office smelled fabulous I made a double recipe, but next year I will have to triple it

  • I didnt put it in a coffee maker, I just put all the spices in a DIY teabag. I also didnt add any brown sugar because it was always sweet and yummy straight out of the carton. I tossed mine in the slow cooker for 6ish hours and my boyfriends best friend is now OBSESED with it. Also, to spike this, spice rum is amazing.

  • Absolutely delicious Easy too Had to use 1 tsp. ground cloves because I realized I didnt have whole ones. My coffeemaker isnt quite big enough, so I dumped in as much as I could & then poured in the rest after I emptied out the pot. Made a double batch for our Thanksgiving get-together, and everyone loved it I will make this again and again and again...

  • I made this for the large Thanksgiving gathering and it got rave reviews I couldnt find cider, so I used juice instead. I made it in the crock pot and it simmered for several hours making the house smell terrific I am making it again for our Christmas celebration tonight. Thanks for this recipe, I have doubled it both times with none left over.

  • We put apple juice in a slow cooker, added mulling spice, then added these ingredients tied in a coffee filter. It came out incredible even though we didnt have any oranges on hand.

  • Really fantastic. I just may brew a pot at work :).

  • I only had ground cinnamon and cloves but it didnt seem to matter. This cider was delicious I also added a pat of butter into the caraffe before brewing - a great accompaniment to Christmas brunch

  • This was a HIT at a neighborhood Christmas party. I made spiced wine and this recipe and the Cider was gone in the first 20 minutes I give it 4 stars, because I halved the amount of sugar and it was still a little too sweet. I also did it on the stove and let the flavors come together for about 2h beforehand... but only because I dont own a coffee pot Thanks for this recipe

  • I think it may be best to add the brown sugar at the end only if needed. I also think that the cider you use makes a difference. Ive made this before and it was wonderful (using half the sugar). But this batch was way too sweet even with the reduced amount of brown sugar. In an attempt to save the batch, I added the juice of 3 lemons...and it worked In fact, I may continue to add a little lemon juice to future cider.

  • Fabulous Tasty and easy. I did it in the coffee maker and it was wonderful

  • This is so good. Made it for a church function and had to make it again because once people discovered it, it went fast. Very comforting and soothing. Perfect drink for cold weather

  • I really liked the flavors of the cider, but mine came our really sour for some reason. I dont know if it was the brand of my cider or what, but it was hard to drink because of how sour it was.

  • Used this recipe several times during the holiday season and everyone loved it. It was simple and quick since I put it in a slow cooker and let it sit while I did other baking. Instead of using an orange quartered, I used 1 orange spice tea bag. Great recipe

  • This is the first recipe of cider Ive ever tried on my kids and they loved it.

  • This was a lovely flavoured cider. Another recipe I used was too sweet and didnt have a distinct apple flavour. We tried this one second and its consistency was also what we were looking for - smoothe and delightful.

  • I made this receipe twice over the 2005 Holiday season. It was very easy to make, although I did so on the stovetop due to the fact that I didnt want to have to clean the coffeemaker. I also made a gallon at a time. Everyone who tried it thought it was great including me.

  • This is the 3rd time Ive made it and I believe Ive hit a homer Dont use any brown sugar, this is sweet enough with the cider. I added 2 cinnamon sticks instead of 1. I also boiled it on high for 5 minutes in a large pot, let it sit and cool for another 5, then double filtered it through my coffee maker basket. I would hate to see what this would do to the insides of a coffee pot for those of us who enjoy coffee. The first filtration is with a paper towel, then back through the basket with a coffee filter. Nothing but rave reviews from everyone that drank it. Well worth the extra work.

  • I did this in the slow cook and it turned out pretty good I would make it again

  • I made this in the crockpot. It wasnt the best cider ever but it was tasty.

  • Wonderful tasting cider I did not makethis in my coffee pot though. I tied up the spices into a coffee filer and put heated it all day in a crock pot. I would definetly recommend this for a nice get together on a cold day

  • Best Apple Cider I have made. Everyone loves it at thanksgiving and christmas time.

  • Oh my Gosh The comments helped me immensly. I used a crock pot instead of the coffee pot and cut back just a little on the brown sugar and it was perfect. It was the best Ive ever made. My guests loved it; I could tell because there was little left over and some wanted the recipe. This is definitely a keeper

  • This has to be the best spiced cider recipe I have ever tasted. Made it in the slow cooker instead of a coffee maker. I didnt have any whole spices, but the ground ones still worked well. Tied them all up in a coffee filter. Made this for Christmas, and it was gone before dinner. A keeper. Thank you.

  • This was a favorite at our holiday party It was so flavorful

  • Wonderful taste and so easy to make We will be using this recipe often on cold nights.

  • I made this cider for Thanksgiving. I reduced the brown sugar to 1/8 cup, as recommended. I used a crock pot instead of a coffee maker. I tied up the whole spices in cheese cloth and put the ground nutmeg, salt, sugar, and oranges straight into the cider with the pouch of whole spices I created. I cooked the cider on high for a couple of hours until it was steaming hot, and then turned it to low when it was almost time to start serving it. I stirred it a few times while it was heating up. I took the cheese cloth pouch out at the end, but left the oranges in.

  • Great recipe Its delicious-just right and leaves your kitchen smelling the same way

  • Yum, yum, yummy I love this recipe It tastes better and costs less than the mixes you buy in the specialty stores. I prefer hot cider over hot cocoa, so this is a god send. Thank you for sharing.

  • Great cider I made it at work and it was a big hit. Didnt use the coffee pot, but it still turned out wonderful.

  • Very yummy. I used a little less cloves (1/4 tsp. less) and 3/4 tsp, cinnamon because I didnt have a cinnamon stick.

  • I made this in a saucepan and it camed out soo so good. It adds a ton of flavor to regular cider that everyone in my house loves. I used the cloves and cinnamon stick a few times before I threw them out, and I added less brown sugar since the cider is already sweet enough.

  • This was great I used the coffee pot, and I didnt have any brown sugar so I just used white and less than it called for. Also all I had were ground spices except for the cloves and added it all in the filter and then mixed it up a bit, and left out the oranges.

  • This is delicious Threw in another cinnamon stick, orange sliced about a 1/4 inch, and a few more cloves. Simmered in a pot on the stove for about 30 min before serving. Everyone got an orange slice and a cinnamon stick. It was a big hit. The only complaint is that it went too fast. Will have to double the recipe when I make it again at the holidays. Thanks and enjoy.

  • Five stars WITHOUT the brown sugar. It was delicious without it. I made it successfully in my coffee maker, but the coffee maker never worked again. The pump wouldnt pump. Next time (after I buy a new coffee maker) I will use the crockpot. I didnt have any allspice, so I subbed some pickling spice and it was wonderful A big hit at our Christmas party-- every drop gone

  • I used only 1 Tbsp brown sugar. Took a coffee filter and put the cloves and allspice in it, then tied with a twist. Used the crockpot, added the remaining ingredients to it and cooked on high for 1 hour; then turned to low 1 hour. Spiked it with Captain Morgans Spiced Rum EXCELLENT

  • I made this in the slow cooker and the recipe is good. A word of caution though: Do not leave the orange slices in for more than an hour or so. The white pith of the orange peel will make the whole batch taste bitter. Or perhaps you could peel the orange first? Mine was very bitter and I searched the internet for a remedy. Adding a little more sugar and a bit of fresh lemon juice helped. It probably didnt get rid of it completely, but it certainly tamed the bitterness to a drinkable level.

  • We make this all the time once the leaves start to change. I dont use a coffee maker, I just dump it all into a crockpot in the morning and we dip into it throughout the afternoon and evening. A very good, basic mulled cider, open to many variations (adding sliced citrus fruit, reducing or increasing the spices, adding ginger-fresh or ground-for a little zing...)

  • Wonderful
