Yummy stuff! Make it just how the recipes states or jazz it up with more of the ingredients and it still is great. The only thing that I do consistently when I make this is I that use apple cider instead of apple juice. I have people ask me to bring this drink for fall and winter parties all the time. It is really that good.

Fabulous! And no added sugar which is a waist line bonus. I added 1 Tbsp. of cinnamon and extra cloves for some extra spiciness. Try it you won't be disappointed--but be sure to use FRESH orange juice, a lot of supermarkets sell it now, it just isn't the same with frozen or carton juice.

Had last weekend at a fall baby shower that I hosted. I kept it in a crockpot on low and it made the house smell so good. The key is starting with a good brand of cider - I used a locally made cider out of Seattle. Great drink to warm you up.

Yum! I doubled the spices in this and let it sit all day. The longer it sat, the better it got! The whole spices made for a very pretty drink. My kids loved it as well. I served this to company with a shot of applejack brandy for those who wanted it. Huge hit.

Made this in the crockpot for a holiday party last winter and it was an absolute hit! Had some bourbon on the side for those who wished to spike it and that was tasty as well.

I used one lemon and one orange and I sliced them into thick slices and stuck the cloves (about 20) into the edges of the slices 'cause I thought it was prettier. I also used 3 cinnamon sticks intead of just 1. It had a lot of flavor, let me tell you!

What a wonderful drink to warm up cold winter days! I doubled the recipe for a party, and it was a big hit. After bringing it to a boil on the stovetop, I transferred the cider into a big crockpot and kept it hot on the low setting. I did make a few changes to the recipe due to the ingredients I had on hand: I used a couple pinches of ground cloves because I did not have whole cloves. I only used a quarter amount of the fresh orange juice because that's the amount I got after squeezing a few oranges. I doubled the amount of raisins and cinnamon sticks for extra flavor. Serve this delicious hot drink with a spoon so your guests can eat the plump raisins as well.
