Sip, Sip, Hooray! Cozy Up Your Space with Our Delectable Holiday Apple Cider Recipe

Hello, lovely design enthusiasts! The holiday season is upon us, and what better way to embrace the festive cheer than by adding a dash of warmth and flavor to your interiors? Today, we're taking a little detour from our usual design-centric posts to share a delightful treat that will not only tantalize your taste buds but also infuse your space with the sweet scent of the holidays. Without further ado, let's dive into our scrumptious holiday apple cider recipe!


  • 8-10 medium-sized apples (a mix of sweet and tart varieties)

  • 1 orange, peeled and sliced

  • 3 cinnamon sticks

  • 1 teaspoon whole cloves

  • 1 teaspoon whole allspice

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar (adjust to taste)

  • 1 vanilla bean (optional)

  • 8 cups water


  1. Begin by washing and roughly chopping the apples. You can leave the peels and seeds - they add extra flavor!

  2. In a large pot, combine the chopped apples, orange slices, cinnamon sticks, cloves, allspice, brown sugar, and water. If you're feeling extra fancy, split the vanilla bean and scrape out the seeds, adding both the pod and seeds to the pot.

  3. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat, then reduce the heat to low and let it simmer for at least an hour. Your kitchen will soon be filled with the delightful aroma of simmering spices and fruits.

  4. Mash the softened apples with a potato masher or the back of a spoon. Let it simmer for an additional 30 minutes to an hour to allow the flavors to meld.

  5. Strain the cider through a fine-mesh sieve or cheesecloth into a clean container, discarding the solids.

  6. Serve the cider warm in your favorite festive mugs or glasses. Garnish with a cinnamon stick for an extra touch of holiday magic.
