Spiced Hot Apple: The Perfect Winter Drink

Out of all four season I like winter the least 🙂 To be fair, this year the really cold days haven’t come yet, but I feel cold all the time.

Some would probably recommend mulled wine or tea with a shot of rum as hot drinks ideal for cold winter nights, but what if you don’t feel like drinking alcohol and want something more special than a cup of tea?

SPICED HOT APPLE is the answer!

One of my favourite hot drinks that will make you feel warm, is easy to prepare and so delicious that you will want to drink it even when it’s not so cold 🙂

RECIPE: Spiced Hot Apple

Ingredients:

  • cloudy apple juice
  • caster sugar
  • cinnamon sticks
  • whole cloves
  • whole star anise

Method:

  1. Place all spices into a pan, add juice and bring to boil.
  2. Add sugar. I usually add 3 tablespoons for 2 cups of the final drink, but it depends on everyone’s taste.
  3. Turn the heat down and leave to just slightly bubble for 15-20 minutes. Stir occasionally.
  4. Pour to prepared glasses or cups over a sieve catching all spices – you will only need the cinnamon sticks, the look nice in the final drink I think 🙂

If you are up for something sweeter, try pear juice! Can’t decide which one I like the most…
