Reviews for Hot Cranberry Cider
"Really nice blend of flavors...my daughter's comment was, "Tastes like Christmas!" It simmered on the stove while we got our Christmas tree in the stand, and was ready to drink when we started decorating. Very quick and easy to make, with ingredients that are readily available. We will definitely be making this again."
"Excellent flavor. Fast & easy. The addition of the cranberry juice made it a bit extra special."
