I found this apple cider on Lacey’s blog, so I made it over Christmas. Next I’ll be making the panko-crusted tilapia from her blog. She has awesome recipes.

I made this over Christmas when we had a brief cool snap. It was fabulous. I loved the combination of apple, brown sugar, orange and the spices. I used a bottle of fresh-pressed apple cider in mine, so it was cloudy, but it didn’t affect the flavor. This is warm, spicy, and wonderful – like Christmas in a cup!
