My family is truly blessed with a lot of wonderful people in our lives… neighbors, teachers, church leaders and others who make our lives so much richer. At Christmas time we like to make all our friends and family feel as special as they are by giving them something made with love. The majority of the time we make food gifts to give. Gathering together as a family to make homemade Christmas gifts has become one of our treasured family traditions. Having a family night to make gifts for others is a fabulous way to spend time as a family!

So here is our homemade Christmas gift: Mistletoe Cider (with a free printable)! Did you know that Mistletoe Cider spreads love and kisses everywhere?? {wink} Trust me – you’ll receive a lot of compliments on this gift. We’ve given spiced apple cider out a few times before and this is a very unique gift that people love!!

Mistletoe Cider is simply Apple Cider (or juice) plus a blend of spices….everything you need to make a warm, delicious holiday drink that can be enjoyed by kids and adults!

I purchased 1/2 gallons of apple juice/cider at Target.  Both juice and cider are delicious when served warm with the spices. A crock pot is an easy way to serve spiced cider for large gatherings.

Nothing like working on your gift giving while drinking the spiced cider.  🙂

Spiced Cider Mix
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1 1/2 teaspoons ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon ground mace
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Mix all ingredients. Place 1/3 – 1/2 cup spiced cider mix in small ziploc bags or cheesecloth. Use 1/3 – 1/2 cup of spiced cider mix per 1/2 gallon of juice. You might want to experiment with how much mix to add to see what tastes best with your cider.

Optional instructions to include: Heat cider until hot but not boiling. Steep the Spiced Cider Mix in the liquid until sugar is dissolved.

Now it’s time to make your gift presentable!
