Sparkling Mulled Apple Cider
(Susan - slehmkuhl517)

1 can sugar free orange soda
2 packets sugar free apple cider drink mix
1/4 teaspoon lemon extract (or to taste)
2 teaspoons apple pie spice mix
3 33.8-ounce bottles Sam's Choice Cider Apple Burst fruit-flavored sparkling beverage (available at Walmart)

Pour the sugar free orange soda into a saucepan. Heat the soda, then pour in the 2 packets of sugar free apple cider drink mix, the lemon extract and the apple pie spice mix. Stir to blend. (This part can be done the night before and refrigerated, if you wish.)

Pour 2 bottles of the Cider Apple Burst into a crockpot. Add the soda/seasoningsblend and stir to mix. Set crockpot on high until liquid is heated through, then reduce temperature setting to medium or low. Taste test and add more Cider Apple Burst if the taste is too strong for you.

**Note: Leftovers can be refrigerated and served hot or cold. This would be nice to keep in a pitcher in the refrigerator to heat on a per cup basis as an alternative to coffee or cocoa in the winter. Serve it cold over ice in the summer.

***Note: To package this as a gift, save old DaVinci or wine bottles. Wash them thoroughly and let dry completely. Use a funnel to pour the cider in and cap or cork to close. Be sure to let the recipient to keep the cider in the refrigerator. Do not freeze unless you put it into plastic containers, and be careful to leave enough head room for expansion of the liquid while freezing.
