"This is good

I use fresh refrigerated apple cider and instant mulling spices from Raven's Nest.888-372-8367 $3.25 for 6oz. I am alone and don't want a whole cooker full of cider at once. Using a 1/2 tsp per mug is cost effective for me."

"I like less sweetness to my cider. I just used Basiks at Home Holiday Mulling Blend with all natural Apple Cider. It had more of a spicey flavor than sweet. But I did enjoy this recipe without the added sugar."
