Drinking Temperature

Served at 138°F (58°C)


  • 8 cups apple cider, homemade or store-bought
  • 1/2 cup caramel sauce, homemade or store-bought
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 3 whole anise pods
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmug


  1. In a medium sized pot, combine the apple cider, caramel sauce, brown sugar, cinnamon sticks, star anise, and ground nutmeg.
  2. Over medium heat, let the mixture gently simmer while stirring occasionally until the caramel sauce and brown sugar have completely melted into the cider.
  3. Let the pot come to a rolling boil. Then, reduce the heat to low and let it simmer for 10-15 minutes, allowing the spices to mingle in the cider.
  4. Remove the pot from the heat and strain the cider through a fine mesh sieve, then discard the cinnamon sticks and anise.
  5. Finally, pour this autumn brew into your Ember Mug and set to 138ºF. Ciders are typically meant to be enjoyed quite hot, but feel free to adjust in our Ember App to suit your taste.

Ember Tips


Your cider, your way!

  • Drizzle the rim of your Ember Mug with some caramel syrup so there’s a little extra caramel in every sip.
  • By all means, top your cider with whipped cream!
  • Want to spice up your cider? Grab an extra stick of cinnamon in there to kick the spice factor up a notch. Either way you can’t go wrong!
