I created this mulled cider recipe for the holiday season. Something to warm you up from the inside. A mug of comfort. I served it at a get-together and saw people getting second servings. The next day, they asked for the recipe. One friend even told me she was gonna serve it on Christmas Eve. Yes, this recipe is a winner. —Sini | My Blue&White Kitchen

    Lovely, made a big pot of this on Boxing Day. Using what i had I switched it up with alcoholic cider instead of apple juice, skipping the calvados and reducing the sugar down to 2 tbsp. Great mix of spices!
