Yvonne's notes for this recipe:
This is a good drink anytime , but especially at the holidays. Great for cold weather entertaining...and the smell of it simmering on the stove is like a little slilce of heaven .. :)

This is a wonderfully different take on your everyday cider. The addition of orange and pineapple juice makes for a slightly sweet, slightly tangy flavor that's perfect for any special gathering!


In a large stock pot over medium heat, combine the apple cider , orange juice, pineapple juice, cinnamon sticks, cloves and honey. Bring to a boil, then simmer over low heat, or transfer to a slow cooker to keep warm while serving. Strain out cinnamon sticks and cloves before serving if desired. :)
