Ya’ll, my house smells ah-mazing right now. Seriously, I can’t get over it. If you want to get into the holiday spirit, I have the answer — homemade Cranberry Apple Cider. It is delicious, warms you from the inside out and makes your whole house smell like the holidays. Oh I how I wish I could share this scent with you now. You will just have to brew your own batch!
This post is brought to you by Sweet ‘N Low as part of the #donthesistaste campaign.
You might even want to double or triple the batch, if you have a big enough pot!
Cranberry Apple Cider
- 3 cups apple juice
- 3 cups cranberry juice (not cocktail!)
- 1 small can of pineapple juice (6 oz)
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 10 whole cloves
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- 3 packets of Sweet N’ Low (or substitute 3 teaspoons of sugar)
- 1 orange sliced
- Cranberries for garnish
Combine all of the ingredients in a large pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and let the cider simmer on the stove for an hour.
Strain the cider through a fine sieve and discard the whole bits.
Serve hot and garnish with additional orange slices and whole cranberries.
