Agave Mulled Cider

Serves: 6

   1 large lemon, cut in half
   1 medium orange, cut in half
   16 whole cloves
   4 cups apple juice
   1/2 cup agave
   4 cinnamon sticks, 2-inches long

Agave Mulled Cider is from the Cook'n with Agave collection.

Cut two slices (1/4-inch thick) from each lemon and orange half. Insert whole cloves into slices; set aside. Squeeze juice from remainder of fruit halves into a medium non-reactive saucepan. Stir in apple juice and agave; mix well. Add cinnamon sticks, ginger and reserved fruit slices. Bring just to a boil over medium-high heat. Serve immediately in a heatproof serving bowl.
