This Slow Cooker Spiced Cranberry Citrus Apple Cider is the beverage of choice this season! Fill your home with it’s delightful fragrance and your belly with it’s spicy warmth! Perfect for parties and the holidays!
I’m sure you’ve all busted out your slow cookers by now…right? Shoot you guys, it’s fall! I had two slow cookers going today and my house smelled ah-mazing! We were having a little get together with some friends and I wanted to make one of our time-honored slow cooker beverages…but with a twist. Wowza – did it turn out good!
Starting in October each year, and stretching as far as we can into the spring (think March), we make this amazing cranberry apple cider that warms the home and our bellies and does amazing things for our appetites. It’s a super simple recipe: equal parts cranberry juice and apple cider (apple juice works just fine!) and then as many cinnamon sticks, cloves, and apple slices as we can fit in there.
It’s a recipe for success 🙂 Today, I decided to put a citrus twist on this family classic with the addition of Lipton Green Tea Citrus Flavored Iced Tea. I always have this stuff on hand. It’s my go-to afternoon pick-me-up and I thought the flavors in this iced tea would go beautifully in the cider. Dang, am I good.
You guys, hello easy and hello awesome. This cider is my new fall beverage of choice. I just loved the flavor that the iced tea added to this easy cider recipe. To amp up the the citrus flavor, I added sliced oranges, lemons, and limes to the slow cooker and let ‘er rip. Easy as can be and you don’t even need to invest a lot of money in candles…this cider will make your house smell fantastic!
We will most definitely be making this cider again. It’s perfect for game days, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years and anytime I get to craving these easy recipe. Make it happen at your house too!
