Toasty warm apple

Warm Apple Drink
Fall is in the air around here and I like to have a warm drink.  Here is  Warm Apple Drink that Margaret Pennel adapted to go with Thrive drink mixes.
Mulled Apple Drink
2 qt prepared apple drink  (2c drink mix, 2 qt water)           2 sticks cinnamon or 1 c red hots
2 bay leaves                                                                                1/2 t whole cloves
1/2 t ground cardamom                                                            1/4 t ground nutmeg
1 or 2 oranges sliced leave peel on
Wash orange well and slice into thin slices.
Mix 2 c apple drink with 2 qt hot water
(adjust to your taste by adding more or less) in 4 qt kettle or sauce pan.
Put bay and cloves in a large tea ball, and place in on top of drink mix. 
Add cinnamon sticks OR red hots. 
Add remaining spices and 1 orange
-if using 2. Slice remaining orange slices in 1/2 and in the center cut
about 3/4 of the way through for a cup garnish-hang on the side of the cup. 

Spiced Orange Drink
2 c orange drink mix                                                               1 c sweetened lemonade mix 
2 t ground cinnamon                                                               1/2 t ground clove
Mix all ingredients in a bowl and store in an air tight container.  To a coffee mug add 1/4 c mix and fill with boiling water. If you make the entire amount of mix for a party, use 2 qt boiling water.
