Ingredients

  • 32 ounces Pear Juice R. W. Knudsens works well
  • 24 ounces Hard Cider Angry Orchard Easy Apple works well
  • 6 ounces Ginger Liqueur De Kuypers or Domaine De Canton work well
  • 1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
  • 12 whole cloves
  • 12 whole allspice
  • 4 cinnamon sticks halved
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
  • 2- inch knob fresh ginger root peeled and rough chopped
  • 1 Apple sliced
  • 1 Pear sliced
  • Garnishes: Star Anise Sliced pears, cinnamon sticks

Instructions

  • Combine all ingredients (except the garnishes) in a large stovetop pan or Dutch oven set over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer 30-60 minutes before serving. If serving over several hours (or if making ahead), place the cider in a slow-cooker placed on warm temperature.
  • Serve in heatproof mugs and garnish with cinnamon stick, star anise and pear or apple slices.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

Note: Ginger Pear Cider is an alcoholic drink. If wanting a virgin version, replace the Hard Cider with regular Apple Cider and replace the Ginger Liqueur with 12 ounces of your favorite Ginger Ale and add ¼ teaspoon ground ginger.
