Nothing smells like Halloween to me more than Witches Brew simmering on the stove. This hot spiced cider recipe will warm you up and make your house smell amazing.

Witches Brew Recipe Illustration

Ingredients to make your Witches Brew:

  • 32 oz. Apple cider
  • 3/4 cup Orange juice
  • Juice from half a lemon
  • 2 Sticks of cinnamon
  • Handful of Whole Cloves

In a large sauce pan mix all ingredients together and simmer.

This is not an exact recipe, I always make it to taste. The more orange juice you add the sweeter it will be. I like mine a little more tart so I use more apple cider.

This is a really simple recipe yet its unbelievably delicious and the perfect hot drink to sip while carving pumpkins, watching movies or snuggling by a fire.

Witches Brew is really just a fancy name for hot, spiced cider. My mom always made this for us as kids and some how calling it Witches Brew made it almost magical. This is a really special drink for me and it definitely stirs all my senses. I think the smell of whole cloves is right at the top of my list of all time favorite smells.

Witches Brew makes the house smell amazing and it tastes wonderful. You could also add your favorite alcohol to it to make an adult version.

I don’t post recipes very often, but it just wouldn’t be fall or Halloween to me without this hot drink. Thats why I wanted to share this recipe with you.

Do you have a favorite hot fall drink or do you make a version of this one?


  1. THANKS AGAIN!! i’ll try it.
