Hot Mulled cider with an orange twist! It's like summer kissing fall and is an invitation to sweater weather. 1 serving = 1 carbohydrate/fruit exchange

What a great cider. I enjoyed this very much. I had a slight throat ache. This lovely, hot, sweet, semi tart cider has helped to soothe my throat. I loved the addition of the cloves in this tasty drink. Thank you so much for sharing.
