Warm up with this unexpected twist on the traditional cider recipe

There’s something about cool weather that makes you want to cozy up with a hot mug of well, anything. Chick-fil-A Chef Christy Cook’s Warm Ambrosia Cider is sure to hit the spot. Using Chick-fil-A® Lemonade as the base– a departure from the usual apple cider– this sweet, spiced beverage is the perfect way to warm up a crowd throughout the fall and winter.
