Thanksgiving is just a few days away and after having several weeks of beautiful, somewhat warm weather, it's finally gotten cold here in Michigan. I guess it was time, I mean it is close to the end of November after all. I wasn't complaining though, I loved the mild temperatures. But now that it's cold, I'll about hot drinks to keep me warm and cozy. One of my favorite drinks is hot apple cider, and I decided to kick it up a notch with some spices and sweet orange zest. What could be better?
