The recipe

Warm and Spicy Apple Drink is lovely and warming and suitable for all sorts of occasions. It is great on its own or can be used as a mixer with rum or another alcoholic spirit if you wish. As an adventurous alternative you could replace the apple juice with cider.

Ingredients

  • 1 litre cloudy apple juice
  • 500 ml water
  • 4 dessert apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 4 x 3 cm cinnamon sticks
  • 15g fresh ginger, peeled and sliced
  • 12 green cardamom pods, gently crushed
  • 6 star anise
  • honey or sugar to taste (optional)

Method

Step 1

Add all of the ingredients to a large saucepan, bring to the boil, then gently simmer for 10 minutes.

Step 2

Remove from the heat and allow the flavours to develop for 5 or 10 minutes. Strain the liquid and serve, replacing some of the spices and apple pieces if preferred.
