INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):
- 1 pint water
- 2 (.14 ounce) envelopes sugar-free apple cider drink mix
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 1/2 whole nutmeg
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon lemon peel, grated
- 1 1/2 oranges
- 1 1/2 teaspoons cloves, whole
Following the directions on the package, combine the appropriate amount of sugar-free apple cider drink mix with one pint of water in a large pot. Add the cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice, and lemon peel. Keep the oranges whole and leave the peel on. Press 1/2 teaspoon's worth of cloves into each orange and place them in the pot. Heat at least 1/2 hour. Before serving, cut oranges into wedges for garnish. This recipe also makes a great slow-cooker recipe.
