"We've served this at our church's big fundraiser each Christmas for the past four years and it's a huge hit! We make enough for 300 people and we rarely have leftovers."

"A refreshing twist to the winter apple cider. My husband and I both deided that we like the recipe very much. The orange juice takes a little of the bite away from the cider. Have made it three times since the recipe was published. Also haveshared this recipe with my famiy members. I use a tea ball for the whole all spice instead of the cheese cloth. This way I can wash it and reuse it. It is easily found with in the saucepan."
