National Mulled Cider Day

September 30th is Hot Mulled Cider Day – what a perfect way to celebrate the arrival of fall!

Mulling is a very old technique that is used to infuse spice flavors to drinks like sweet wines and ciders. Most European countries have some sort of a rendition – British Wassail, Nordic Glögg, Germanic Glühwein, French Chaud Vin, Russian Glintwein... And the list keeps going on and on!

The spice combination differs by region, but is usually some mixture of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and/or citrus. While mulled drinks have been around since the Roman Ages, it became a holiday tradition after it appeared on Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.

Mulled Cider is best when made with unfiltered apple cider, which usually come out around this time of the year. If you can’t source any, you may substitute with filtered apple cider.
