Apple Cider

If you are looking for a delicious drink that is easy to make and will also leave your house smelling absolutely lovely on Thanksgiving day, this apple cider is the way to go! It is made in a slow cooker, so you could easily throw the ingredients in the night before and let it go over night or you can have it going during the day while you are doing some Thanksgiving meal prep. Easy as that. Just set it and forget it!

 

All you need to make this delicious apple cider is apples, an orange, cinnamon sticks, whole cloves, and water. I used two golden delicious apples, one fuji apple, and one red delicious apple. I’ve tried this recipe with a variety of different apples and honestly they’ve all tasted delicious, so just pick out your favorite apples! The best part about this recipe: NO ADDED SWEETENER! This apple cider is delicious hot, cold, or even used in a mimosa. To make an apple cider mimosa, just fill the champagne glass 1/3 – 1/2 way with apple cider and top it off with some champagne. You can even add some diced apples into the glass or add a little cinnamon sugar rim to the glass to make it a little “fancier.”
