The Perfect Hot Chai Cider

I must admit, the holidays last year were a whirlwind for me. Too many places to be and people to see, it all went by so quickly and suddenly it was 2013. This year, Thanksgiving is going to be more low key and relaxed. I hope to stay in the present moment and enjoy it. I found this hot chai cider just in time for Thanksgiving, it's perfect for a comforting finale to your delicious meal.

I hope you have a lovely Thanksgiving!

  • 1 c Apple cider or juice

    1. Hi Katrina,

      Glad you find this post just in time.

  2. I love chai tea in the Winter and chai cider sounds even better. I would have to limit it to a few however. Great post.

  3. I love a good hot beverage around this time. Lately, I've been going heavy on the hot chocolates, but this sounds great too. Seems easy enough!
