Blue Ribbon Recipe

Your house will smell amazing while this hot cranberry cider simmers in your Crock Pot. Seriously better than any candle or plug-in you can buy. Enjoy this on a cool, crisp fall day or during the holidays. It has the flavor of hot cider brought to another level thanks to fresh orange, clove, and cinnamon. The cranberry is subtle. All the flavors together are amazing. You could make this an adult beverage with a shot of whiskey (if you drink alcohol).
