Hot Spiced Cider

Hot Spiced Cider

This traditional holiday drink is indispensable on cold winter evenings.


6 to 8 servings


  • 2 quarts fresh apple cider
  • 8 sticks cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon whole cloves
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/4 cup plus additional to dip glass rims, Domino® Quick Dissolve Superfine Sugar
  • 1 lemon peel (yellow part only)
  • 1 egg white, slightly beaten (optional, to dip glass rims)


Bring first 6 ingredients to a boil in a large saucepan. Reduce heat; simmer 5 minutes.

Decorate rims of heat-safe glasses or mugs by beating the egg white in a small bowl until slightly frothy. Dip the rims of the mugs or glasses into the egg white, then into a small dish of sugar.

Strain cider into mugs or glasses. Place a cinnamon stick into each glass to garnish; serve immediately.
