If you are a fan of mulled apple cider then try this version made with pears for a change. It’s a bit lighter but just as delicious.


  • 4 (22-ounce) bottles hard pear cider
  • Zest of 1 medium orange, removed in large strips
  • 1 (3-inch) piece ginger, sliced into 1/4-inch-thick pieces
  • 1 vanilla bean, split and seeds scraped (optional)
  • 1/2 cup brandy
  • 1/2 cup honey


  1. Place the cider, orange zest, ginger, and vanilla bean into a large pot and simmer over medium heat for 10 minutes.
  2. Remove the pan from the heat and allow to cool and steep for 20 minutes to allow flavors to blend.
  3. Pour the brandy and honey into mugs, top with the pear mixture and then stir to combine. Serve immediately.
