You must try this recipe; it is so delicious and tastes like a spicy apple cider.
Last fall, I was hosting an open house and really wanted to have a crock pot full of hot cider for everyone to enjoy. Knowing that I would likely need to replenish the pot several times, the cost of cider for that many people was outside of my budget. I looked to my favorite allrecipes.com and found a recipe for Autumn Punch. Of course, I couldn't leave it as is but changed it up to suit my tastes. The results were wonderful. No one touched the hot coffee or tea. I saved a bundle of money with this "faux" cider and now have a standby not drink for the cold Chicago months.
