At this time of year, I love to warm up something spicy and soothing to keep my hands warm. This is a favorite...my spiced apple cider. You can replace the cider with some cloudy fresh apple juice for a non alcoholic treat. best sipped with friends and laughter and some cheesy Christmas music.
Pop all of the ingredients into a big pan and gently warm through. Serve warm.
- 2 pints of apple cider
- 150ml fresh orange juice (freshly squeezed if you can)
- 6 cloves
- 5 cardamom pods (crushed)
- 4 star anise
- 3 lemons (sliced)
- 3 cinnamon sticks
- 1 piece peeled fresh ginger (sliced)
- one big pan
- Christmas music
