Having the most frugal grocery budget in the world isn’t going to help you any if you can’t put together at least a few healthy, tasty, and cheap eats! Every month, The Outlier Model features a cheap recipe idea, along with the cost breakdown.
It’s not the holidays without a warm cozy drink! One of my favourite drinks to curl up with is a nice, spicy apple cider. We often get them at the Vancouver Christmas Market, but they are pretty easy to make at home. This apple cider recipe uses unsweetened fruit juices with no added sugar.
Add all of the ingredients into a large pot and bring it to a boil. Reduce the heat and let the mixture simmer for approximately one hour. Strain, and enjoy while warm!
You can also garnish the drinks with an orange wedge or cinnamon stick before serving.
Cost per serving: $0.40
Feeling adventurous?: Add a splash of rum before serving to make this a slightly more “adult” drink.
