With the start of fall, we all start looking for tasty warming drinks as the weather gets cooler.

My husband is a big fan of apple cider, so I am always looking for different ways to get him his cider.

Here is an apple cider recipe with a twist.

The “twist” with this mulled apple cider recipe is the addition of five-spice powder, rather than classic pumpkin pie spices. It adds a little something special to an already great-tasting combination.

One of the best things about this delicious recipe is the warm and wonderful aroma that fills your home every time you make it. It’s a great way to welcome your family home after a long day or to create a cozy atmosphere on a chilly fall or winter weekend afternoon. For added ambiance at your next gathering or get-together, whip up a batch to have quietly simmering in the background – your guests will thank you!
