This 2 minute mulled cider recipe is super delicious and ready in a flash! These seem to be extremely popular at Christmas markets along with mulled wine, but if you want a homemade DIY version in a flash it’s very simple to do!

Simply grab yourself a mug and pour in either cider or apple juice about 4/5ths of the way to the top. Drop in the listed ingredients, give a quick stir and microwave for 2 minutes (800 watt microwave) on full power. If your microwave is stronger than that, you may need to do it even less! The spices will infuse the cider and will make it taste delicious. Remove them before drinking if you wish 🙂
