If you wanted, you could add some orange zest, orange juice or even some nutmeg or cinnamon.

I made this for the first time and used 1/2 orange juice, 1/2 apple cider and 1/2 cup less sugar! A little tart but good! Thanks for the inspiration!

I’m making this today and adding orange juice. I didn’t buy jalapeños at the store and too crowded to go back. Next year! Donna John Jan Mostrom Rosie Schmitgen

I made a variation of this simple recipe for Thanksgiving and everyone loved it! Instead of water, I used half cup fresh squeezed orange juice, half cup pumpkin apple cider, 3/4 cup brown sugar, sprinkle of cinnamon. Just delicious! Donna John Dr. Shayna Mancuso Jan Mostrom
