Warm Apple and Cherry Cider in Glass Cups

Warm Up With This Yummy Cider

When the temperatures drop, a hot cup of apple cider is a great way to warm up. Added bonus — apples and cherries are both antioxidant-rich along with other healthy nutrients.

The recipe below is for hot cider but can also be served cold or as a base for punch.
