How to Make Homemade Holiday Cranberry Cider

Step-by-Step

  1. *** You can make your own juice by juicing the oranges you zested along with a few more oranges - to taste. Add some apple juice, honey, water and organic pure cranberry juice. The organic cranberry juice goes a long way so you won't need more than 1 bottle. Also, you could use ginger ale for a sweetener. Mix with the cranberry and orange juice. Ratios I'm not sure about, I always do it to taste.
  2. Mix ingredients in large pot or slow cooker and mix together. Heat until steaming and serve.
  3. Crock pots are great for making this a mobile drink for parties.
