• 2 cups apple juice
  • 12 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 pinches nutmeg
  • 18 tsp. cloves
  • 12 tsp. maple syrup


  1. Combine all ingredients in a pan, and simmer for 5 minutes or until hot.
  2. Strain into cups.


This drink gives a relaxing and warming feeling. For a lack of a better way to describe this feelings: it's like being in front of a warm fire at Christmas. You'll know it when you feel it. This drink is a delicacy of the Southern United States that dates back to its Colonial Period. We recommend replacing the apple juice with the so-called "apple cider" that is sold in some retailers, which is merely a less-filtered apple juice. This is the superior and traditional way of making the drink. We cited regular apple juice in the ingredients because it is much easier to acquire.

My 10 year old daughter has been asking me that she wanted apple cider. I just noticed the recipe section in your site. Of course, I had to try this recipe. Simple, natural ingredients that I already had made this experience with my daughter perfect! She actually blended apples and strained them herself to use as the apple juice. We are going to use a mix of apples next time to see how that taste! Many thanks again!
