Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time1 hr
Total Time15 mins

Ingredients

  • 2 litres dry cider - (hard cider)
  • 2 oranges – cut into quarters
  • 100 g white sugar
  • 4 allspice berries
  • 2 half a cinnamon stick
  • ½ star anise pod
  • 250 ml brandy

To Serve:

  • Orange and apple slices, cinammon sticks

Instructions

  • Gather all the ingredients and put them in the pan.
  • Cover with a lid and heat gently, bringing the cider to a simmer.
  • Cook for half an hour.
  • Serve in heat-proof glasses with slices of orange & apple and a piece of cinnamon stick.

Notes

  • Get a mid range supermarket own label cider for making this, not the most expensive, but also avoid the cheapest. 
  • To cook in the multicooker, set to 80°C and leave for an hour. 
  • To make in the slow cooker, cook on high until simmering and then set to warm. 
  • You can make the punch in advance – just bring it up to a simmer and then allow it to cool. Then reheat to serve. 
  • Try other spirits instead of brandy – for instance, calvados or amaretto. 
  • For a non-alcoholic mulled apple punch, use a good sharp apple juice instead of cider and leave out the brandy and all or most of the sugar, depending on the sweetness of the juice. Add a cup of tea or hibiscus tea if you like.
