This hot cider was wonderful on a cold winter evening! The taste of orange juice stood out, so I increased the apple cider and allowed my cinnamon sticks to steep awhile in it ~ Doing so balanced out the flavor nicely. Thanks Paula!

All the tastes of Autumn in a glass! So very good. Enjoyed the OJ in this. But I think it's the brown sugar that brings everything together for a true taste treat. Thnx for sharing your recipe, Paula. Made for Comfort Cafe Snow Queen Chalet Jan 2010.
