Hot Cranberry Orange Cider

by Laura

I love hot chocolate but I also love hot cider. The fruit variation just like with this hot cranberry orange cider is a nice change from the chocolate variety.

I love to especially include a hot cider option at breakfast during the holiday season. Also, I love the flavor of cranberry and orange together at this time of year. I usually use orange as an accent flavor in my homemade cranberry sauce and I also like to use it in my pull-a-parts that I serve on Christmas morning. This hot cranberry orange cider brings those two flavors together again.
