Easy Spiced Apple Cider Recipe

There’s nothing like hot (and easy) spiced apple cider on a chilly afternoon that fills the entire house with a welcoming aroma.

There's nothing like hot (and easy) spiced apple cider on a chilly afternoon that fills the entire house with a welcoming aroma.

As Halloween approaches I begin to think of hay rides, going to pick out the perfect pumpkin,corn mazes and bonfires.  Most of these are done after dark and it can get pretty chilly where I live. Warming up with a hot beverage, like this easy spiced apple cider recipe, makes the cold fly away.

This hot apple cider recipe is made with ingredients you have had stored since the summer: Dry lemonade mix and orange drink mix are two ingredients you may have left over from the summer BBQ’s and breakfast celebrations.  All that is missing is a gallon of apple juice or apple cider. Either will work, so buy what is on sale.

There's nothing like hot (and easy) spiced apple cider on a chilly afternoon that fills the entire house with a welcoming aroma.

I was providing refreshments at a family fun evening outing and decided that Doughnut Holes  and Apple Cider would be perfect.  But cold cider would not do. I wanted a drink that would leave everyone warmed inside too. I  have a couple of really good mulled cider recipes in my file but, to be honest, I  was too lazy to search for them. My recipe collection is getting out of control.  So I thought that I could make up a recipe from scratch easier than trying to find my other recipes.  I remembered most of the key ingredients so off I went to get some apple cider and cinnamon sticks.

There's nothing like hot (and easy) spiced apple cider on a chilly afternoon that fills the entire house with a welcoming aroma.

Enjoy!
