Hot spiced cider with a hint of orange is the perfect way to warm up in between dashing to and fro holiday errands and parties.
I served this at my holiday open house. It hardly takes a moment to mix together. Set it on the stovetop on medium low at least a half an hour before guests arrive to fill your home with its lovely fragrance.
