Grown-up hot apple cider. Perfect for a cold winter day. My recipe actually calls for mulling spice, however, RecipeZaar does not recognize it as an ingredient. Use 3-4 tablespoons mulling spice in place of allspice, cloves, cinnamon sticks and orange rind, if available. Use good quality fresh apple cider (not apple juice.) This would also make a nice cocktail if cooled and served over ice.
