Orange Grog

Preparation Time: 10 minutesCooking Time: 30 minutes

An awesome Fall night drink. Comforts the chill in the air.

I have never added alcohol to this drink, so it is a kid-friendly drink. But if you want to add in the rum, port, or bourbon, go for it! This is a recipe that is very easy to tweak to your tastes. Just add in what you like and leave out what you don’t.


  • 6 Sticks Cinnamon
  • 6 Whole Cloves
  • 8 Cardamom Seeds
  • 2 C Orange Juice
  • 2 C Apple Cider
  • 1 C Golden Seedless Raisins
  • 1/4 to 1/2 C Sugar
  • 2 C alcohol of choice (Optional)


  1. Tie spices in a cheesecloth bag
  2. Combine all ingredients except the wine in a large saucepan and simmer uncovered for 30 minutes
  3. Add the Port Wine and heat thoroughly
  4. Remove the spice bag and discard
  5. Serve hot in mugs
  6. YIELDS: 12 (1/2 Cup) Servings
