I love making warm cider at the holidays, and this Cranberry Spiced Cider is always a hit on a chilly winter’s night.
If you prefer, you can keep this cider warm in a slow cooker–that’s what I usually do. It’s so easy to whip up a batch, and it makes the whole house smell like Christmas!
This aromatic beverage is perfect for parties, or just relaxing at home with loved ones. It’s sure to become a Christmas-time favorite!
