2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

2 cinnamon sticks

1 (2-inch) piece ginger

1 (12-ounce) bag fresh cranberries or 1 cup dried cranberries

1 orange, zested


  1. Combine all of ingredients in a large pot and bring to a boil over medium heat. Once the mixture is boiling, turn heat down to low and bring to a gentle simmer. The cider will permeate the house with a warm and inviting holiday scent. Add more apple cider as needed when the cider evaporates.
  2. This recipe can also be reduced by half and prepared in a fondue pot so that it can be placed in a room other than the kitchen.
