Warm up this winter with some homemade mulled apple cider! Fill your kitchen with fall aromas and get into the holiday spirit.
Mulled apple cider is the quintessential fall drink. With cloves and spices, and apple and oranges, how could it not be? I remember my mom making this for my family all throughout the holiday season year after year. It's not November or December without this cider.
When I was celebrating my first married Thanksgiving with my husband's side of the family, I had to bring this to the table. Sure I could have attempted a side dish, but this felt more special... And easier! I was thrilled when everybody enjoyed it and now I want y'all to share it with your loved ones.
