The leaves are getting crispy, I’m bundling up in cozy scarves and sweaters and all I want is a hot drink in my hand. I’m not a coffee drinker (gasp!) and I drink a lot of herbal tea but apple cider is a healthy sweet treat. I came up with this recipe for cider one day when we had run out of a few spices. It is a perfect blend of sweet and spicy on a blustery day.
Make sure to use only high quality essential oils (I use doTERRA) and less is more, as they are super concentrated.
Cat's Instant Spiced Hot Apple Cider
2L Apple Cider
1 drop Wild Orange
1 drop Cinnamon (or Cassia)
1 drop Clove Bud
1 drop Cardamom
Optional: dash of cayenne
Combine all ingredients in a large pot or slow cooker and heat thoroughly. Pour into mugs and garnish with a cinnamon stick and enjoy!
**To make just one mug, dip a toothpick into a bottle to get just a little of each essential oil and swirl into hot apple cider.**
