64oz cranberry juice
64oz apple cider
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 oz. (generous 1/4 cup) Bisschopswijn Mulling Spices

Optional – After brewing add 1-2 ounces one of our many favorite types liquors to each mug full to make into a delicious hot toddy.  Just to name a few we like amaretto, Fireball, Captain Morgan and other spiced rums, Southern Comfort,  cinnamon schnapps, fruit flavored schnapps, fruit flavored brandy, cherry bourbon, cinnamon whiskey.  See a full list of our favorites under the Hot Toddy page.

Stove Top or Crock Pot Method
Combine the cranberry juice and apple cider in a large crock pot or large sauce pan. Add the brown sugar and stir until it is dissolved. Place Bisschopswijn spices in the muslin bag provided. Close the bag by pulling the strings and tying them into a bow. Place the bag of spices into the juice mixture. Cover the crock pot or sauce pan and heat the mixture until hot over a medium setting on your crock pot or medium heat on your stove top. Do not boil. Reduce the temperature to low and simmer for 15–30 minutes. Stir occasionally to make sure the brown sugar has dissolved completely. Taste the Bisschopswijn occasionally. Remove the spice bag when the desired amount of “spice” is reached. Ladle the hot Bisschopswijn into mugs and serve with a Cinnamon Stir Stick.

If you ever sample our product at a farmer’s market, festival or craft show you will be sampling this recipe. This is the family friendly recipe or for those who don’t want to indulge in the wine recipe. We often make this for parties and set up what we call a “cider bar”. We put out bottles of spiced rum, peach schnapps, cinnamon schnapps, apple schnapps and fruit flavored brandies then let guests flavor their spiced cider according to their own personal taste. Always put out a few Cinnamon Stir Sticks for mixing in the extra flavor.
