Hot Spiced Cider

Most of the country is freezing this week, so take a break and ENJOY!

2 qt. container of apple cider
3 cinnamon sticks
12 cloves (whole)
a couple tablespoons orangeade mix/"Tang"
1/2 qt. water
a handful of red hot candies
Optional: a splash of "adult beverage"-spiced rum or whatever suits your fancy!
I also sometimes splash in some cranberry juice

Directions: Throw it all in the crockpot or on the stove until it's hot and enjoy! (Put in the adult beverage after cooking, not before!) Be sure to strain out those cloves, too.

Sounds yummy. I kind of like the "adult beverage" part!

Merry Christmas!!!

When you work with children, adult beverages are sometimes a necessity, yes? :) Hope you're having a wonderful Christmas and staying warm! Does your family do Glogg for Christmas?
