The last few weeks have been pretty crazy day job wise, so it’s been lovely to have a little time off to put up the Christmas decorations, wrap some presents and write Christmas cards whilst enjoying a little mulled pear cider this evening. I’m not a big fan of cider on the whole, but pear cider I can do, personal favourites include kopparberg and rekorderlig.
Mulled cider, i’d never tried before. But, as it’s Christmas……
You will need:
- 1 litre of pear cider
- 1 pear, sliced
- 50ml ginger wine
- 1/2 tsp fresh ginger, grated
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 5 cloves
- the zest and juice of 1 lemon
- 2 star anise
Place all the ingredients except for the sliced pear into a heavy based pan, heat gently for 15 to 20 minutes, do not allow the mixture to boil. Once warmed through take the mixture off the heat, add the sliced pear and allow to rest for 5 minutes so all the flavours can infuse. Serve warm, in mugs. The perfect winter warmer
