Warm Apple Drink with Herbs & Spices

Apple Cider

Delicious sweet and spicy apple drink to warm you up this fall.


  • 5 apples, peeled, cored, and cubed
  • 6-8 cups water
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • Add: herbs & spices of your choosing


In a large saucepan, combine the water, sugar, apples cinnamon, nutmeg, herbs and spices of your choosing and bring to a boil. Boil gently until the sugar is dissolved. Lower the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the apples are very tender about 20 minutes.


Remove from the heat. Let cool to room temperature before serving.


Serve as a warm drink with some breakfast items, such as toast, French toast, waffles, pancakes, or as an afternoon tea with pound cakes.

This makes me yearn for crisp fall days, changing leaves and pumpkins. It reminds me of the fall days I would spend in Woodstock. Unfortunately we dont have fall here in Israel and the weather will continue to be an average of 90 degrees for the next few months. Oh well I will just have to live out fall vicariously through this beautiful warm apple drink!
