A great drink to enjoy after a night of caroling or decorating the tree! One sip and it will put you in the holiday spirit. The aroma while this steeps on the stove is incredible. The Test Kitchen

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.
  • 2Mix ingredients in large pot or slow cooker and mix together. Heat until steaming and serve.
  • 3Crock pots are great for making this a mobile drink for parties.
