Sept 30 is Hot Mulled Cider Day!

Lauren Voigt

As if you needed a reason to celebrate (I mean, its already Friday) — it’s also “Hot Mulled Cider Day” which is certainly a worthy reason to have some fun.

Gluhwein, a traditional German and Austrian beverage, is made up of red wine and mulling spices — sub in spiced, mulled cider, and you’ve got the perfect fall-festive cocktail.

Mary Mohn, owner/tasting room manager at Flower Valley Vineyard, shares with us a couple recipes:

mulled-wine-3Mulled Cider and Wine

 1 bottle Flower Valley Vineyard Frontenac
3 Cups Spiced Apple Cider (Trader Joe’s)
2-3 Cinnamon Sticks
Heat gently, just below a simmer – be sure not to boil!

Mulled Cranberry Wine

1 Bottle Flower Valley Cranberry Wine
1 Jug Spiced Apple Cider (Trader Joe’s)
1 cup of Apple Brandy
1/4 to 1/2 Cinnamon Schnapps (to taste)
Heat gently, just below a simmer – be sure not to boil!

Note: A crock pot or coffee urn also work well if you want to keep this to temp for a party crowd.
