Absolutely Delicious Hot Apple Cinnamon Cider

apple ciderI've always been a huge fan of hot apple cider during the fall, but this year? Between the hurricanes and nor'easters and freezing temps, I'm craving the stuff more than ever. Seriously, what better way to warm up than with a mug of spicy seasonal goodness?

Not to mention how incredible your kitchen will smell as the cider simmers. (This recipe couldn't be easier, but it does take a while to brew. Maybe "mull" is the word?) Add a cinnamon stick before serving (a shot of Irish whiskey works well, too!).

    This looks delicious and would be so warming on a cold night.
