The air is getting a little bit chilly…just perfect for a mug of hot apple cider at bedtime.
Here’s an easy-breezy recipe for you to try…in less than 30 minutes you will be enjoying a cup yourself!
4 cups apple cider
1/2 cup fresh squeezed orange juice (just buy it already squeezed for you!)
1/8 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice (I love the frozen Minute Maid Lemon Juice…NOT the lemonaide…but the real lemon juice)
1/4 orange, sliced
1/4 lemon sliced
6 whole cloves
1 cinnamon stick
In a medium-sized saucepan bring all of the ingredients to a low boil…then reduce the heat and simmer for another 10-15 minutes. Strain through some cheesecloth to remove all of the pulp and chunky items, then carefully ladle into a pretty little mug. Sit down…put your feet up…drape a luscious quilt over your legs…and take a little sip. Ahhhhhhh…..now THAT’S GOOD!
