And now, we bring you a semi-seasonal appropriate drink of Mulled Cider. This mulled cider recipe takes into account that most of you schlubs don't have access to fresh spices, and uses the kind of middle America mega-mart crap you're likely to have around. Also, it's another one that you can give to your non-alcohol-drinking friends, although a much better solution to that issue is simply to not associate with the Ladie's Temperance Movement type of people.
Remember, don't do this with apple juice, because that's dumb. You need American Sweet Cider for this. Check the footnotes for more info.
Pinky Street ladies don't measure, because they've done this for too long and so they know how much they like. You can either wing it until it tastes how you like it (which is not hard) or check around for some references.
