In a 6 quart slow cooker pour in apple cider and cranberry juice. Add in all the spices, orange slices, squeezed lemon juice, honey and cranberries and stir lightly to combine.
Heat on low for 2-4 hours.
Serve warm straight out of the slow cooker, filtering out the whole spices if desired. If using spiced rum or bourbon add one ounce per glass. Garnish with a cinnamon sick, orange slice and cranberries.
A slice or two of fresh ginger will provide a slightly spicy kick.Make this adultThis mulled cider is perfect for kids and adults because it is not spiked in the crockpot. To serve mulled cider at a party or get together, place liquor bottles next to the slow cooker for adults to spike their own drink. We found that spiced rum and bourbon were the best in mulled cider.Storage InstructionsLeft over cider can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. You can reheat it in the slow cooker or drink it cold, both taste amazing!
