In this mulled cider recipe, apple cider is simmered with orange, honey, cloves, and cinnamon, then given a mild boozy kick from amontillado sherry added just before serving. Keep this sweet-smelling punch warm in a slow cooker at a holiday party or winter cocktail party, or let it simmer while you throw together our classic Pumpkin Pie recipe.
What to buy: Amontillado sherry, made in the town of Jerez in southwestern Spain, is aged longer than fino (or dry) sherries. It has a nutty, sweet flavor and is darker in color. You can find amontillado sherry in the wine section of well-stocked grocery or liquor stores or online.
Special equipment: For this recipe, you’ll need butcher’s twine and a piece of ultrafine woven cheesecloth, which can be purchased at cooking supply stores or online.
