Whip up wonderfully wintery beverages

Last updated: 01/05/14 5:16pm

My sweet tooth doesn’t stop at just solid foods. When I am feeling slightly parched in the wintertime, I like to snuggle up with a good book and sip on some warm, homemade apple cider. If I’m feeling a little more adventurous, I might even go for some non-alcoholic eggnog.

Mix all ingredients in saucepan and warm over low-heat for 20 minutes, stirring until sugar dissolves. Remove cloves and cinnamon stick and serve warm.
