~ Mulled Rosey Cider ~Â

Makes 16 (1/2 cup) Servings
4 cups cider or unfiltered apple juice
2 tablespoons grenadine (a syrup made from pomegranate juice, usually found in the liquor section of larger markets)
4 cloves
4 pods of cardamom, slightly crushed
1 cinnamon stick, cut in 2-inch pieces
fresh lemon zest, cut in 2-inch strips
fresh orange zest, cut in 2-inch strips

In a medium saucepan, combine the apple cider with the grenadine, cloves, cardamom, cinnamon, lemon and orange zest.
Heat the cider until small bubbles appear around the edges of the liquid.
Reduce the heat, keeping the cider warm enough so that steam rises from the surface.
Hold it at this point for 20 min.
Remove the spices and zest from the pan (use a slotted spoon).
Pour the cider into clear punch cups or mugs and serve.
