Hot apple cider is warm, comforting and full of delicious holiday spices. Perhaps best of all, it fills your home with a warm, festive, holiday scent that is so inviting and fun for a holiday party or cozy evening at home. 

This recipe can be made in your VitaClay pot and kept on warm for hours, so you can ladle some into a cup and be warm any time! 

The spices in hot spiced cider are nutritious and help to boost your immune system while suppressing your glycemic load. So there's more than a few things to love about this hot, holiday drink!

I love a good hot cider on a chilly fall or winter evening and this one is perfect. Make sure you add this to your favorites.┬á I sometimes add a shot of rum for a warm and cozy cocktail. ItÔÇÖs great for holiday parties, too.
