Tips  

For a family-friendly cider, substitute club soda or sparkling water for the wine or champagne.

Don’t have a slow cooker? You can cook this on the stove instead; just simmer over low heat.

To make it easy to remove the spices, tie them in a double thickness of cheesecloth or paper coffee filter before adding to the cider.
