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.

This hit the spot. This is great for a cool fall evening. The flavors are great combination. I will be making this again.

I thought this was delicious and actually have drank most of it myself today. Temperatures are falling and DH has been working outside most of the day, so I thought it would be just the thing to warm him up. Unfortunately, he puckered throughout his whole cup, which he did drink, but afterwards his stomach started bothering him. He is sensitive to acidic foods, so I won't be serving this to him again. My youngest DD drank a cup and wasn't interested in having any more although she did say it was good. She's another one of those who prefers the super sweet stuff. Guess I'll just make a small batch for myself next time. I didn't have any Apple Cinnamon tea on hand, but did have Cinnamon tea so I substituted that. Thanks for sharing Sarah!
