Considering that we're in one of the darkest months of the year, I wanted to share with you my go-to recipe when it comes to hot spiced apple cider. It can be used for those cold nights when you want something "comforting" or you can use it for when you are entertaining (just double or triple the recipe, depending on how much you need).
So here it comes, my recipe for hot spiced apple cider.
Hot Spiced Apple Cider
1 liter apple cider
3 cinnamon sticks or 1/2-1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 desiliter brown sugar
1/2-1 teaspoon whole cloves
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
A pinch of nutmeg
One orange or two clementines, in wedges
Combine all ingredients in a pot and bring it to a boil. Reduce the heat and let it simmer (under a lid) for 10-15 minutes. When serving it, strain it to remove the spices and wedges of orange/clementines.
