So yummy!! My family loves this recipe, especially on a cold day.

The spices and apples in this spiced cider will make your entire house smell of the holidays. The clove and cinnamon, mixed with the warm cider, is the perfect combination on a cool, crisp day. We added the optional spiced rum and sugar. It was delicious! There is a very small amount of alcohol for the quantity it makes, but will be just as tasty if you opt to leave it out. The citrus flavor the sliced orange adds is the perfect touch. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Holiday Spiced Cider

Step-by-Step

  1. Pour cider into a stove top pot. Turn stove on to medium.
  2. Add sliced apple and oranges, cinnamon sticks, clove and optional ingredients.
  3. Simmer for 10 minutes to get flavors to start releasing and blending.
  4. Turn down and keep warm. This will keep on your stove for 2-3 hours if not kept on high of heat.
  5. When adding the spiced rum, I only add enough to flavor the batch just a little. You can add more to your individual cups if you want.
