I like big cups and I cannot lie... Every time I pass a coffee/tea/cocoa mug stand, I always have to stop and browse the selection. I have a slight obsession with finding the perfect mug for my hot beverage fix, and what it all boils down to is the handle. If I can't fit all four fingers into the loop with my thumb snugly wrapped around the rounded cup, it doesn't matter how cute it is, back on the shelf it goes. I do like to start or end my day with a hot cup of tea, but in the fall I branch out to hot cocoa and cider as well. Now, I have only one mug in my collection that fits my picky mug criteria, but I save that for tea. I've been on the hunt for the perfect cocoa and cider mug lately, and while I haven't found one that I absolutely love just yet, I did experiment with a few apple cider recipes recently and did find the most perfect one in this Hot Mulled Apple Cider recipe from Golden Blossom Honey.
This bevereage is everything I love about fall all wrapped into one delicious drink. The color, the warm autumn flavors of apples and cinnamon combined, and how amazing it makes your house smell while it simmers on the stove. Mmmm! Who doesn't love the taste of fall? Now, I just need a mug to go with the recipe, but for now, it does look stinkin' cute in these handled mason jar mugs, right?
Ingredients4 cups apple cider
