Brew up a batch of warm apple cider with ease in this no-sugar-added drink recipe. The hot toddy stays warm and party-ready in your crock pot all night long.
Place cloves, allspice, cardamom and cinnamon sticks on a piece of cheesecloth and tie into a bundle with a piece of kitchen string.
Combine apple cider (or juice) and the spice bundle in a 5-quart or larger slow cooker. Cover and cook on High until hot and aromatic, at least 2 hours.
Reduce heat to low. Remove the spice bundle and stir in brandy. Garnish with apple slices and some of the spices, if desired. Serve warm.
