Can you believe it? October is here. Fall is already in full swing, and before we know it, winter will be knocking on our doors. Holiday season’s on the way too, and whether you’re hosting the seasonal shindigs or attending them, everyone loves a delicious drink that tastes and smells like homemade apple pie.
Every fall, my friends and I have our annual Friends-giving, a potluck dinner in late October or early November, before life gets too hectic with the holidays. It’s our time to enjoy each other’s company, tell our favorite stories and, if we’re lucky, snag some delicious recipes right before our families’ gatherings.
This recipe comes from Friends-giving 2013’s hostess, Lauren, who made this mulled, spiked cider a few hours before the rest of us arrived. The encompassing smell of the cider was so warm and delicious, that walking into her apartment was like walking in to a cozy hug after a long day.
