Hot Apple Cider

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure policy.

I love wassail and spiced cider drinks. I make one every year for Halloween. It’s the perfect thing to enjoy after trick or treating! Especially here in Utah. We can have some extremely cold Halloweens here. My family was mad at first that I was trying something new for our Halloween hot drink. However, they were happy once they had a sip of this hot apple cider. Delicious.

I love that this is warms in the crock pot too. Just place all of the ingredients in the crock pot and forget about it until it’s time for you to drink it. You add some apple cider to the slow cooker along with some brown sugar, cider vinegar, vanilla extract, cinnamon sticks, whole cloves, and a sliced orange. Then just cook on low for 5-6 hours. So easy to make and so tasty!

I actually read that hot apple cider has some health benefits too. It can help relieve muscle cramps, treat irregular digestion, and possibly protect against cancer. So this is excellent to drink if you are feeling a little under the weather or just looking for a tasty fall drink.
