Spiced Orange Cider Mix

Rated as 4.89 out of 5 Stars

"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!"

I love this mix, it's perfect, I'm giving this as gifts for Christmas it's so good! Thanks for sharing :)

One of my favorite drinks from childhood. Thanks for sharing.

This is a great gift for first time church attendance.

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 Splen...

I have always loved this and could not find the recipe this winter. I am glad you put it in here.

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!

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.
