Mulled apple cider is a great beverage to serve on throughout the cold winter months.

What sounds better on a cold day than mulled apple cider?

This hot beverage is sure to please this holiday season (and all winter long) and can be made non-alcoholic or you can add your favorite spirit to add a little kick (we recommend bourbon for this one). And, it’s fairly simple to make, it only requires seven ingredients and around 30 minutes to make.
