What better way to keep your friends and family's bellies warm than to serve them a hot cup of orange & cinnamon infused apple cider. Since it's made and served straight from the crock pot, you can just put it all together and let it sit for the day. No worrying about it getting cold or boiling over on the stove top. Just a hot & yummy beverage ready to warm you when you come in from the cold. :)
6 c. apple cider
2 large orange slices
2 cinnamon sticks
Pour apple cider in slow cooker.
Stir in orange slices and cinnamon sticks.
Cook on low 2 hours.
(You can leave it in the slow cooker longer to keep it hot & ready for your guests, just turn it down to warm after the 2 hours are up.)
While you can serve your cider in mugs the traditional way, we thought it would be a bit more "festive" to ladle it into martini glasses and garnish with cinnamon sticks. (If we had oranges left, we would have used orange curls, too.) Make it fun and stay warm! :)
