Warm up this holiday season with a steamy mug of homemade apple cider. We've combined favorite spices, fruits, and mix-ins to create these easy cider recipes.
Create adorable apple mugs for cider this season. To make, cut the tops off eight very large apples. Use a small ice cream scoop or melon baller to scoop out the centers, leaving a 1/2-inch shell. Don't scoop too close to the bottom and sides of the apples. If desired, brush insides of "mugs" with lemon juice to prevent browning.
