And it’s super easy, too!

In the more brisk months, there’s nothing better than wrapping your hands around a hot mug of apple cider. Just the fragrance is enough to lull anyone in from the cold and calm the senses for a while. But, in my opinion, the jug of store bought stuff is much too sticky sweet.

Instead, a toasty cup of cider made easily from apple juice, cinnamon sticks, nutmeg, cloves and a fresh orange fits the bill! Not to mention, the aroma makes every inch of your home smell spicy, cozy and seriously amazing.
