Spiced Cranberry Cider in a Jar Mix
Cranberry is more unusual for a drink, but definitely fitting for the holidays
1/2 cup dried cranberries (craisins)
12 cinnamon sticks
1/2 tsp crushed whole cloves
2 tbsp allspice (whole)
Combine all ingredients in a bowl, then pour into a small jar (or ziploc bag if mailing) and seal tightly.
2 quarts apple cider
1 quart water
1 jar/package Spiced Cranberry Cider Mix
2 oranges, sliced
In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine cider, water and spiced cranberry mix. Heat until the mixture is hot but not boiling then add orange slices. Serve and garnish each mug with an orange slice.
