mulled cider

Mmm... the smell of fall!
4 c. water
2 tsp. ground allspice
1 cinnamon stick
1 dash ground cloves
1 gallon of cider or apple juice
1 can (12 oz.) frozen lemonade, thawed
3/4 c. orange juice
1/3 c. honey
1 tea bag (we use herbal tea)
Cinnamon sticks for garnish (optional)

Combine the water, allspice, cinna-stick and cloves. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer uncovered for 30 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients and return to a boil. Turn off heat and let cool 5 minutes before serving.
Serves 12-18

I got this recipe back east in Charlottesville, where we spent some of our fall days at the top of the grassy rolling hills of Virginia at the apple orchard.

Enjoy this fall infusion throughout your home!
