Make This Yummy Christmas Chai Spiced Cranberry Cider For Your Next Holiday Get Together

We typically think of a creamy, sweet latte when someone mentions chai. However, the spices used in chai can also be used to make other tasty drinks as well! One of my favorite holiday beverages is a hot apple cider that has been simmered with chai spices. This particular version of the recipe calls for the addition of fresh cranberries, which add a boost of vitamins as well as a yummy tart bite.

Every time I make this recipe, it disappears faster than you can say “ho-ho-ho,” so I thought you might like to try it too! Try bringing this spicy cider to your next holiday party, or make it for your family. It is caffeine-free and safe for the whole crew.

Ingredients You'll Need To Make This Chai Spiced Cider

Feel free to add your own favorite ingredients. You can add orange sections, pomegranate seeds, pear slices, a small sprig of rosemary, or a tiny pinch of cayenne. Make it your own!


How To Make It

  1. Add all of the ingredients to a stainless steel saucepan. Cover the pan with a lid and simmer everything together on a low heat for 15-20 minutes.
  2. Adjust based on your likings: taste it! Make sure it’s the right level of tartness and sweetness. You can add a touch of maple syrup if it’s too tart, or more cranberries if you think it needs a little bit more bite. (If you do add more cranberries, crush them a little before adding them to the pot; cover and simmer for another 5 minutes.)
  3. Strain out the berries and spices out by pouring the tea through a handheld strainer into a punch bowl or into a heat-safe strainer pitcher.
  4. Pour or ladle your cider into your mug and enjoy!
