Pour a Spiced Cider Cup

Scented with cinnamon, ginger and cloves, our Spiced Cider Cup is like autumn aromatherapy for your home. It’s important to make it ahead of time and strain out the spices or they will completely dominate the drink. And if you don’t feel like running out to buy Calvados, aged rum or brandy are both excellent substitutes. For a mulled mocktail,simply omit the Calvados from the recipe. To avoid any confusion, tie ribbons around the alcohol-free versions.
