We took my parents on a mini wine tour when they were in town, and our first stop was Bellwether Cidery. After tasting a sampling of their ciders, we each ordered a glass of mulled cider to sip out on their patio. The spice and sweetness of the cider combined with the warmth of the sun protected us from the chill of the wind as we chatted and sipped. It was perfect.
When my friends came to visit this weekend, I decided I needed to attempt to replicate that perfection.
I bought two bottles of Bellwether cider: one Original and one “Liberty Spy,” two of our favorites. (Bon Appetit loves them, too!)
I added some sugar and spices and set it to warm in the crockpot while we explored Ithaca. By the time dinner was ready, we had perfect hot mulled cider!
