Add cinnamon sticks and star anise; turn off the heat. Add orange and apple slices. Cool. Cover and refrigerate for up to 5 days. If desired, add brandy to the entire batch, or to half. Serve chilled, or warm in a slow cooker before serving. Tips Ingredient Note: Look for pomegranate molasses at Mediterranean and Middle Eastern groceries. It adds a deep, tangy note that balances the sweetness of the cider, but it can be omitted if desired. Tips Make-Ahead Moment: This can be made up to 5 days ahead and served straight from the fridge with fruit in the pitcher.
