Yield: 6 servings

Preparation time: 1 hour

Cook time: 5 minutes

Ingredients

  • 12 oz. cranberry juice
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 2 star anise
  • 1 tsp whole cloves
  • 1 bottle (25 oz.) sparkling apple cider, chilled

Directions

  1. Pour the cranberry juice into a medium saucepan. Add the cinnamon sticks, anise and cloves. Turn to medium-high heat and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Remove the pan from the heat and let sit until cooled completely, about 45 minutes to 1 hour. The longer it sits, the more the spices will flavor the juice. Strain through a mesh colander and discard the spices.
  3. To serve, add 2 ounces of the mulled juice to a champagne flute. Top the juice with about 4 ounces of chilled sparkling cider.
