The Perfect Cup of Cider

Happy Monday, Everyone,

Wishing you had a lovely weekend. Down here in the Austin, the weather was perfect sweater weather, and the changing leaves are finally here!

I don’t know about you, but being able to make the perfect cup of cider can be a difficult task, but I’m quite sure I’ve finally reached the point… Introducing, Embarque & Co’s Delightful Apple Cider- don’t worry, there aren’t any bizarre or expensive ingredients.

I suggest serving this at a Christmas or Hanukkah party (whether you’re the host or guest). I’m going to give you two options for making this cider, a single serving and party size.

Ready, set, go!
