Lovely! I needed a quick warm-up so heated up a single serving in the microwave for 25 seconds at a time until hot (about 2 minutes total). I couldn't find apple-pear cider so just used apple. This is probably better if it steeps all day, but even done in the microwave, it was still tasty! Thanks for sharing :)

What lovely spiced cider. I let my simmer for half the day. It was thick, rich, spicy and perfect. I really enjoyed the maple syrup in this drink. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Made for Comfort Cafe - Chalet 01/10 :)
