Hot Spiced Cider

Sunday, 5 December 2010

This is another favourite winter drink. Nice and easy and very warming and a little less potent than mulled wine.
1 litre dry cider
50-100g caster sugar
2 Cinnamon sticks
1 tbsp allspice
1 tsp nutmeg powder or a whole nutmeg
4-6 cloves
Half an orange with peel.
In a saucepan, heat the cider and add all ingredients. Simmer for about 5-10 mins and leave it to soak in the spices. Serve hot.

The traditional recipes include rum and orange peel (rather than whole orange) but I like the extra fruitiness the whole orange brings and like to limit the alcohol content.
