                 Hot Mulled Cider


Provide the perfect welcome to holiday guests with this fragrant, warming drink. 

And the bonus is that when they come into your home the aroma is amazing and recognizable to all as something served only during the winter festive season. 

1 quart cider 
1/4 cup orange juice 
1 tablespoon brown sugar 
1-1/2 teaspoons cinnamon 
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves 
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg 
4 to 6 cinnamon sticks 

COMBINE ALL ingredients except cinnamon sticks in saucepan and heat to boiling. Remove from heat and set aside for 15 minutes to 1 hour to allow flavors to blend. When ready to serve, reheat cider, pour into mugs, and place a cinnamon stick in each mug. Makes 4 to 6 servings. 

Here is a neat tip for this recipe

If you don't have cheesecloth on hand, use a tea leaf filter holder or a coffee filter to hold the spices.

Add a splash of rum or brandy to really warm up a chilly day.

For a decorative touch, you can stud an apple with cloves and allow that to float in your cider pot instead of adding cloves to your spice bag.
