64 oz 100% apple cider or apple juice, unsweetened (organic if possible)
3 cinnamon sticksAdd to saucepan
4 whole allspice berries
6 whole clovesPlace in a spice ball or tie up in cheesecloth. Add to saucepan
1 orangeCut orange into slices. Add half to the saucepan and save the rest for garnish. Simmer 10-20 minutes. Serve warm in mugs. Garnish each with a cinnamon stick and orange slice.
