Our Go-To Apple Cider Recipe

We love making homemade apple cider because you really can’t beat the delicious taste of FRESH  cider. And it doesn’t have to be super time-consuming, which is why we created this Instant Pot apple cider recipe. You’ll need the following harvest-y delicious ingredients:

  • Apples
  • Orange
  • Lemon
  • Maple syrup
  • Whole cloves
  • Whole allspice
  • Cinnamon sticks
  • Pumpkin spice seasoning
  • Coconut sugar
  • Vanilla bean
  • and water!

When all is said and done, you’ll have a large batch of homemade apple cider whipped up in under an hour.

If you don’t have the time to make this homemade cider, we recommend fresh apple cider from an apple orchard or co-op if you have access to either!

What Do You Spike Cider With?

We recommend spiking apple cider with either whiskey or rum. Whiskey will give your spiked cider a spicier warm taste, while rum will give it a sweeter taste. For a combination of sweet and spicy, we recommend Fireball or another cinnamon whiskey.
