Blushing Cranberry Cider

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Baby Kato

This is a lovely hot cider...served in a warm mug and garnished with orange slices. It is a delicious treat, after spending time out in the cold.

Top Review by Sydney Mike

Made this for 3 of us & doubled the recipe, since I wanted a bit left over to have COLD the next day, & as much as we enjoy a hot cider, it was every bit as great tasting chilled as it had been warm! Absolutely wonderful tasting & a great keeper of a recipe! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed in 1-2-3 Hits Tag]
