Golden Apple Cider with Turmeric & Spices

Updated: Jun 19

Happy Friday everyone. My Sophia is off from school today so we took the opportunity to go for a walk outdoors. The air is crispy and the skies are a bit moody, the sun is trying real hard to peek from behind the clouds. The ground is a bit damp, as we walked the forest preserve, the leaves are crunching beneath our feet and that smell slowly hits you: that fresh, earthy smell. Everything feels crispy and fresh as if the earth is preparing for its long winter nap at least in this part of the world.

It’s the perfect time to go inside and make a pot of warm and spice scented apple cider. Wish you all a happy warm and cozy weekend.

Golden Apple Cider with Turmeric & Spices


4 cups 100% pure apple cider

1 cinnamon stick

2 star anise

3 green cardamom pods slightly crushed

2-3 slices of fresh turmeric peeled or half a tsp of ground turmeric

2-3 slices fresh ginger peeled or half a tsp of ground ginger

1/2 tsp of whole pink peppercorns

1 Apple thinly sliced and few more for garnish


In a pot heat the ingredients together until fragrant. Strain and serve hot with a slice of apple.

Optional: For the adults I added a shot of Grand Marnier (an orange flavored liquor) and a shot of orange juice for the kids. By the way this will make your house smell amazzzzzing.
