What’s a holiday party without drinks? Sure, you can serve boring old soda, water, and juice, but why not let your guests sip on some real holiday flavors, like the cranberry-apple-orange trio in this amazing Crock Pot Apple Cider recipe?

While this recipe leaves out the allspice, it’s so close to mulled cider I didn’t care, anyway. Plus, it’s made in the Crock Pot, so I can set it and forget it! That’s more time for me to hustle and bustle away preparing everything else for my guests — or, if I’m lucky, to catch a quick breather.

One of my most favorite things about this slow cooker apple cider recipe is that it fills my house with wonderful holiday smells. Nothing makes me feel more cozy, warm, and happy inside than the smell of Christmas!

Ready to make your house smell wonderful and impress your guests with this delightful concoction? It’s as easy as one, two, three!
