"This is by far the best Hot Cider recipe. I cut the recipe in half & added spiced rum to each cup. Next time I will add a handful of dried cranberries or golden raisins to each mug. The heat from the hot cider will plump them up, but have to remember to serve it with a little spoon so they can be spooned up?..! Thank you so much for sharing your recipe with us all."

"Have made this twice. Second time I made my own lemonade concentrate with fresh lemon juice, sugar and water--turned out great again!

Soothing and warm drink."

"This recipe had so much flavor! My guests loved it! However, I think I would add less orange juice next time."

"This is a wonderful recipe. Great flavor and easy to make. My guests raved about this all night! I put spiced rum and southern comfort on the side for anyone to add if they chose. I am definitely keeping this recipe for entertaining!"
