Instant Hot Spiced Cider

After experimenting all week with various versions of Hot Buttered Apple Cider, I've decided this simplest of recipes (with no "buttered," just the hot and the cider) is my favorite.

You simply pour some apple cider into a microwavable mug.
Wash an orange and slice off some of the peel. (Try not to get the white part, which can be bitter. If your peel comes off in small pieces, that's fine.)

Poke three or four whole cloves into the orange peel. Put the whole thing into the mug of apple juice, and microwave it for about a minute and a half.

That's it! Instant hot spiced cider. If you have any cinnamon sticks on hand, you can stick those in the mug before serving.

What are your favorite wintertime drink recipes?

Yum!! Now I want cider! I would add a cinnamon stick to this, but I love the orange. Sounds so good!
