Great For Cold Nights
I love this stuff!

Perfect for cold nights.

It tastes so great...and smells wonderful!

And better yet...its actually very good for you.

Heres a few benefits:
Cranberries-Heart healthy...Improves circulatory system...Reduces the risk of kidney stones
Lemons-Effective in curing digestive problems...Acts as a diuretic...Hasten wound healing
Oranges-High amount of anti-oxidant...Provides protection against viral infections...Lowers high blood pressure
Cloves-Good source of fiber...Reduces inflammatory symptoms...Acts as a mild anaesthectic

Traditionally...cider is made from pressing apples...but the taste and smell of this drink remind me of cider from when I was little...so thats why I named it a cider...instead of just a drink.

Enjoy! ^-^
