Winter Cider Sangria Recipe

Holiday Sangria Recipe - The Inspired Room

Greetings! I’ve got a really deliciously festive drink recipe for you, it’s been a real hit around our house! We do love our ciders. I am just popping in to share it, I hope you all are enjoying a late Merry Christmas Eve! I’ve been way off my usual posting frequency so while I’ve been a wee bit scarce on the blog, I’m still here, just trying to be IN the moment with my family. It’s been wonderful! I miss you all though!

Over Thanksgiving we made a really pretty drink and after it was spied in a pic on my Instagram, I promised followers there that I would post the recipe! Well, a few weeks later (eh hem) but HERE IT IS!

We made it again today and snapped a few pics for you, and it’s quite festive and delicious for celebrating. It would be great to make over Christmas/New Years’ break for parties or celebrating all winter long.

I’ll be coming back tomorrow for with some cell phone behind-the-scene snapshots from this week, to wish you all an official Merry Christmas from our house to yours.

Meanwhile, pin and save this recipe and enjoy! (of course, feel free to modify to be non-alcoholic by omitting the wine and bourbon, it will still be just as festive!).

Mulled Hot Cranberry Apple Cider

Hey Friends! I’m so glad we are all back after the little email fiasco where 20,000 emails went MIA every day for a couple of weeks. Sheesh. Let’s hope we can all stick together from now on! We’ll see how it goes this week with the emails if you are a subscriber. I have lots of Christmas decor posts in the works (I’m SO excited about Christmas this year!) and my laundry room update coming up (it turned out pretty cute!)! I don’t want anyone thinking I’m being a Scrooge and hibernating from the blog world so just remember, I’m STILL HERE at The Inspired Room even if my emails get lost in cyberspace!

So, this is my GO TO fall and winter delicious hot drink recipe. It’s a mulled cranberry apple cider! Sound good? IT IS! We made it this weekend, it was SO COLD around here. Not sure what’s up with our temperatures here in the NW, but it was FREEZING.  But while I don’t like cold, the good news is it made us all the more in a festive fall mood.

Not only will this drink warm your tummy, delight your taste buds and make you feel all fall-cozy as you sip it, but it will make your home smell DIVINE. I make this every time we have a fall or winter party, and even just for US. It’s such a treat!

Here is what you need to make my favorite hot spiced cranberry apple cider:

8 cups of cranberry juice (not cocktail, just cranberry juice)
8 cups of good apple cider (get it fresh from the farm if you can)
2-4 T brown sugar
4 cinnamon sticks
Allspice (I just put a pinch in)
8 whole cloves
Slices of orange

In a large pot, combine the cranberry juice and apple cider. Stir in brown sugar. Add cinnamon sticks, allspice, cloves and orange. Heat until it almost boils and then reduce it to simmer. You can taste it and if it needs a little more sugar or whatever you can add to it.

Strain out your cloves and cinnamon sticks before you serve.

Now … for the best part.

Grab a pretty mug.

Pour yourself a cup of cider.

Sit in a comfy chair next to the fire.

Inhale and exhale deeply.

Sip slowly.

Relax and enjoy! And maybe make some while you do your Christmas decorating? If you need a little Christmas inspiration, you can find my Christmas house tour from last year here and my Christmas decorating gallery here.
