This is the season for warm, spiced drinks by the fire. We made this using some home brewed cider, just remember to save some cider for a wassail in January.
- 2 bottles dry cider
- 3 heaped tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 4 cloves
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
- 6 allspice berries
- 3 large cap fulls of brandy or sloe gin
Stick all the ingredients into a large pan and heat gently for 5-10 minutes until warm through. Do not boil.
Strain through a muslin cloth or tea-towel and serve immediately.
