This is the next best Holiday drink after eggnog. Christmas time is the time for nice hot drinks to warm the body. Hot apple cider does the trick!
Most recipes call for cider combined with some spices and sometimes sugar, heating it on the stove and serving hot.
You can buy the store brand and check on the back label, sometimes on the Apple Cider bottle you will find directions for the HOT cider recipe. You can also purchase individual cider packets that come prepackaged on a per cup serving similar to how hot chocolate does it. These are very handy but can also be very sweet. I would recommend the bottle route.
Some cider’s you can drink cold, but if you want to warm up drink the hot apple cider!
