We will be taking mugs of this hot Spiced Apple Cider out tonight while we watch the fireworks in Cambridge along the river.
For Guy Fawkes night in the UK (5th November), we mark the tradition by attending a fireworks display and eating stew, crusty bread and baked potatoes to keep warm and cosy.
Spiced Apple Cider
(makes one jug to serve 4-6 people)
- 4 cups apple juice
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup brown sugar packed
- 1/2 lemon, thinly sliced
- 1/2 orange, thinly sliced
- 1 stick cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- lemon slices to garnish
Combine all ingredients in a large saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and continue cooking for 10 minutes. Strain through a sieve and serve in warm glasses. Garnish with lemon slices.
This is a super sweet version, but I love it. You could add some alcohol of your choice if you wanted to.
