Yes, we’ve already posted once today. But we can’t help ourselves – today is the first Sunday of Advent and we have this recipe and invitation that we can’t bear not to share with our people!
There’s just something about warm, spicy drinks around the holidays, isn’t there? They stir up memories in our minds like first snowfalls and crackling fires and being with people we love. That’s why we love this recipe so much.
Our Christmas wish is to have one great big party with all the Shes who read Truth all over the world! (Seriously though, wouldn’t that be incredible?)
Since we can’t (Save the Date for a She-party in Heaven), let’s do the next best thing. Wherever you are, sometime this month, take a day to mull spices and sip cider and thank God for His provision of this community of women in the Word all over the globe.
Make this recipe (created by a fellow She, Christina Stainbrook!), and when you drink it, know you are very likely drinking cider and celebrating Advent with another “She” somewhere in the world.
Let’s enjoy a month-long celebration of all God has done, is doing, and will continue to do. Even if we can’t be together, we can celebrate Immanuel: God with us!
(Just for fun – take a photo of you with your cider and share it on social media with the hashtag #SheCiderParty so we can have a virtual Christmas party!)
Shes’ All-Day Spicy Cider
4 cups apple Juice
2 cups cranberry juice
1 cup orange juice
whole cinnamon sticks
Pour all the juices into a large dutch oven over medium heat. Slice the apple and orange and attach cloves. Place the apple and orange slices and whole cinnamon sticks in the dutch oven (they should remain floating). Mull on medium to low heat for 2-3 hours. Just before guests arrive, increase the temperature so it steams. Ladle in mugs and serve with a cinnamon stick.
