Slow Cooker Spiked Apple Cider will warm up you up on a crisp fall night. Fresh cider, brandy, fresh orange juice, cinnamon, and cloves make a perfect fall drink.
Today marks the last of my #FallFlavors recipes! There have been so many yummy posts I have a list full of things I want to make! However, I have saved one of my favorite recipes for last: Slow Cooker Spiked Apple Cider.
Cider is one of my favorite drinks. I look forward to apple season this year for a chance to buy some fresh from the orchard. I really like my cider slightly on the tart side, but I love it both hot and cold.
This recipe takes a fresh ciders and slow cooks it with brandy and a little orange juice to create a fall cocktail that is absolutely delicious! I love to make a crock of this on a cool day, or when we have a get together with friends. The other plus is that it is easy to put in the fridge and save for later if needed.
Apple cider, which obviously delicious, is a pretty nostalgic drink for most people as well. Who doesn't remember a cold day with a one of those white cups filled with cider? It is still one of my favorite smells!Welcome to Flavors of Fall where we celebrate all things associated with fall like squash, apples, pecans, sweaters, football; you get the idea!

It's unseasonably cold here this week, so I could use a glass of this cider to warm me up! And I bet it would make the house smell amazing too!
This sounds so warm and delicious! I cannot wait to make it.
I can only imagine how wonderful the aromas are while this warms up!
I may have to do this with the Litehouse cider I got. It looks super warm on cool fall days.
