Golden Apple Glow Cider Recipe


  • 4 cups of fresh apple juice (preferably organic)
  • 1 orange, thinly sliced
  • 4 whole cinnamon sticks
  • 1 tsp of whole cloves
  • 1 star anise
  • 1 tsp of allspice berries
  • 1 small piece of fresh ginger, thinly sliced


  • A dollop of honey or maple syrup for sweetness


  1. Combine Ingredients: In a large pot, combine the apple juice, orange slices, cinnamon sticks, cloves, star anise, allspice berries, and ginger slices. If you like your cider a bit sweeter, add a touch of honey or maple syrup.
  2. Simmer: Bring the mixture to a gentle simmer over low heat. Avoid boiling to keep the flavors fresh and vibrant. Let it simmer for about 20 minutes to allow the spices to infuse their flavors.
  3. Taste and Adjust: Taste the cider. If you desire more sweetness or spice, feel free to adjust the ingredients to your liking. This is your creation, so make it something that brings you joy and comfort.
  4. Serve Warm: Once the cider is infused to your liking, strain out the solids and serve the cider warm. Garnish each cup with a cinnamon stick or an orange slice for an extra festive touch.
  5. Enjoy Mindfully: As you sip this delightful cider, take a moment to appreciate its warmth, the blend of spices, and the sweet undertone of the apples. Let it be a reminder of the simple yet profound joys life offers.
