If you love spicy and sweet like me then you’ll probably start craving this Spiced Apple Cider.
It’s fast and easy and totally delicious! The BEST part about this recipe is that it’s great for breaking the ice with your friends about the total JOY of essential oils.
Introducing essential oils to your friends and family can be intimidating. How can I convince them that essential oils are amazing? Will they think I’ve gone off the deep end and practice some alternative cult stuff just because I love to run my diffuser and carry oils with me everywhere I go. (You know you do it, too!)
We feel you. We’ve been there. And that’s why we just let the oils speak for themselves. Serving delicious foods and drinks that feature essential oils is one of our favorite ways to let oils shine without having to say a word! We don’t have to spend a lot of time thinking of the right thing to say when people are tasting, smelling, and experiencing for themselves how amazing these essential oils are firsthand.
The next time you have people over for an introduction to oils class serve warm mugs of this delicious and easy Spiced Apple Cider. I promise that you’ll have their attention.
I like to serve the Spiced Apple Cider in these pretty, double-walled tea cups pictured above. I love them because they’re not my plain coffee mugs and it really highlights the color and richness of the cider. Aren’t they sophisticated?!
*NOTE: Our favorite mugs are not available at the moment. You could also try these mugs here. They’re very similar in design and just a little bit bigger.
If you’re coming up with a menu for your fall or winter gathering, try some of these complementary recipes to serve with your Spiced Apple Cider:
- Bake a batch of Chewy Ginger Cookies. I like to pull them right out of the oven as the guests are arriving. The fresh baked scent is heavenly.
- Prepare several loaves of our amazing Pumpkin Bread. Slice it up and serve it with honey butter. You can bake these in advance, freeze, and reheat the day of. They do not disappoint.
- Put out a tray of this delectable Peppermint Fudge. They’re fun to make and fun to eat.
- Put out supplies for everyone to make their own Peppermint Hot Cocoa. These DIY make and takes are super easy. It’s fun to send all your guests home with a treat!
