When I was a little girl, my mom and I would go into Christmas shops. I distinctly remember the smell of cinnamon being in each store. Sometimes the stores would have hot apple cider to sip as you shopped. Those were my favorite. The taste and smell of spicy cider brings me back to those amazing times. We first tried this drink at our friend's wedding and completely fell in love. The crisp taste of apples and the hint of cinnamon will have you in a festive mood right away.
