Nothing is more soothing than a hot cup of spiced orange cider on a cold winter's night. I've enjoyed this recipe for years. Bring this mix to work, as it's a sure-fire drink your co-workers will L-O-V-E. It's also a cute, easy, inexpensive holiday gift that's fun for the kiddos (looks like sand art). Enjoy!

Really nice! I had some trouble finding the instant tea mix - none of our supermarkets had it (they just had iced tea mix) but finally found it at Walmart. Only change I made was to use Splenda instead of sugar. My hot beverage of choice is coffee but I drink too much of it in the winter. This will be a replacement for me. (I don't care for hot cider). Thanks for the recipe! Read More

I've been making a version of this for years but I substitute Splenda for the sugar and also add 1 cup of sweetened powdered lemonade mix. It's easy and very flavorful. Read More

Awesome! Just like my mom made when I was little! Since I adore cinnamon I put in a full teaspoon. I also made a cup with 4 spoonfuls and it was delicious! Read More
