This simple three-ingredient cider recipe couldn't be easier. It starts with store-bought apple cider, then adds a cinnamon stick and a fresh piece of ginger. As the brew simmers, it will fill your home with the fragrance of the holidays.

How to Make It

Combine 8 cups apple cider, 1 cinnamon stick, 8 whole cloves and 1 (3-inch) piece of fresh ginger, peeled and cut into 6 small pieces, in a saucepan; bring to a simmer over medium-low heat. Simmer, partially covered, for 15 minutes. Strain into a heatproof pitcher or bowl and serve warm. Serves

The drink was okay. 10 being the best I would give it a 7. Few things though, I would not add ginger and maybe add a drink mix. Good portion. I did not add ginger I am not to fond of it.
