  • Slow cooker


  • 8 cups apple cider
  • 2 cups orange juice
  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon juniper berries
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 thumb-size fresh ginger, peeled and sliced
  • 1 apple, cored and sliced thinly
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cardamon
  • 1 orange, sliced thinly


  • In the slow cooker, add the apple cider, orange juice, and pineapple juice.
  • Add in the brown sugar, juniper berries, cinnamon sticks, and fresh ginger. Add the ground nutmeg and ground cardamon. Stir to combine.
  • Add the apple and orange slices.
  • Cook on HIGH for 2 to 4 hours or on LOW for 6 to 8 hours or until completely heated through
  • Let cool slightly and serve in mugs. Top with apple or orange slices.


  • You can use either apple cider or apple juice for this recipe. The spices give it a great flavor, so apple juice works just as well.
  • If you can't find a particular spice, it's ok to omit it. Also, feel free to adjust spice amounts to your preference. Check a natural grocery store for whole spices, but it's perfectly fine to use ground spices here as well.
