Warm up with These 5 Steamy Ambrosia Apple Cocktails

Mulled Ambrosia Cider Cocktail Recipes to Warm you up on a Cold Day

Leave the frozen margaritas and frosty beers for the summer, these seasonal, steamy adult beverages are perfect when it’s cold outside.

We’ve shared our recipe for Spiced Ambrosia Cider in the past, but this option follows a more traditional mulling recipe and makes a great base for a variety of cocktails.

Here’s the recipe for:

Ambrosia apple ciderMulled Ambrosia Apple Cider.

Toast spice seeds whole in a pan:

  • 4 cardamom pods
  • 1 whole star anise seed
  • 2 pinches of coriander seeds
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 pinch of black peppercorns (optional)

Once the seeds are toasted and fragrant, transfer to a pot or slow cooker.


  • 5 cups of unpasteurized, unfiltered Ambrosia apple juice (use a juicer, a blender and strainer, or buy at the farmer’s market)
  • 5 thin slices of fresh ginger
  • 1 orange (peel and juice)

For the best flavour results, make this in a slow cooker (and keep warm) for 5 – 8 hours. If you’re in a hurry, bring the ingredients to a boil and reduce to the lowest setting for as long as you can. The longer it simmers, the more the mulling flavours will marry in.

This Mulled Ambrosia Apple Cider is delicious on its own, strained and served in a mug. But, if you’re looking for something with a little more kick, here are a 5 steamy cocktail recipes featuring Mulled Ambrosia Apple Cider.
