Omg...I can already smell the aroma in the air. It's funny because I use apple cider vinegar all the time in cooking...but have never had warm apple cider. Does anyone know what the storage time would be for this recipe, or if it could be frozen in ice cube trays for later use.

My coworker made this for our Thanksgiving potluck and it was a huge hit! I'm making it for my family's Christmas party this weekend. It is perfect- yummy to drink and it makes the house smell like the holidays!

This cider had a wonderfully warm and inviting flavor. I'd honestly make it all year round!

The citrus added the perfect burst of flavor to this drink! I could have this every day in the winter and be a very happy camper )

This is the perfect drink for a cold, wintry day or holiday. The lemon and orange add a zesty extra bit of flavor!
