We feel your pain. It’s the holidays and all your family and friends are cozy – binge watching shows in the living room. The only thing missing from this equation are mugs of homemade apple cider to complete the holiday cheer.
But a trip to the store in sub-zero temps for apples (or pre-made cider) is not in the cards.
Just head to the pantry and grab your apple cider vinegar. We’re going to kitchenhack a hot cider recipe everyone will love!
Seriously, a bit of lemon juice, tart apple cider vinegar and some maple syrup for sweetness is all it takes to approximate your favorite cider!
