Apple Orchard Cider

Apple Orchard Cider

I think we can all agree that it has been a pretty rough winter here so far in the Finger Lakes. To try and warm up, we decided to make a delicious and hot cider drink (spiked, of course). Not only is it delicious, but it’s so easy to make! And who doesn’t love a good crock-pot recipe?! As we like to say, it’s easy to make and easy to drink! This hot cider cocktail is perfect for a night or weekend snowed in with friends and family. We all hope it doesn’t happen again this winter, but who are we kidding? Next time you’re stuck inside on a cold, winter day, cheer up with this Apple Orchard Cider!
