Mulled Apple Cider with a Twist
The “twist” with this mulled apple cider recipe is the addition of five-spice powder, rather than classic pumpkin pie spices. It adds a little something special to an already great tasting combination.
One of the best things about this delicious recipe is the warm and wonderful aroma that fills your home every time you make it. It’s a great way to welcome your family home after a long day or to create a cosy atmosphere on a chilly fall or winter weekend afternoon. For added ambience at your next gathering or get-together, whip up a batch to have quietly simmering in the background – your guests will thank you!
