Warm Winter Drinks (Show 1271)
|We sure had fun making our hot chocolate stand, and after playing outdoors in the winter, it feels so nice to come inside our cozy clubhouse and drink a cup of something warm. Lots of times, our mom or dad will have hot chocolate ready for us when we come inside. When we go to our friend Susan's house we usually have hot carob, which is also delicious. But there's another wintertime drink that's warm and comforting, too, and that's Spiced Apple Cider. It takes a little longer to make, but it sure is yummy, and it makes the house smell incredible!
* 4 cups of apple cider or apple juice
* 2 cinnamon sticks
* 3 cloves
* 1/8 tsp. nutmeg
* a pinch of powdered ginger
* an orange.
Scrub the orange, and cut it into slices. Then put all of the ingredients into a pot. Stir well, and bring to a boil. Then turn down the heat, and let it gently simmer for a half hour. Strain before serving. Ahhhhh!
