Christmas is just round the corner – so it must be mulled cider time.
To make your own mulled cider, simply follow this simple Thatchers family recipe:
Take two litres of Thatchers Gold cider, and add:
· 1 sliced orange, lemon and apple
· 2 star anise
· 5 cloves
· 2 cinnamon sticks
· 8 slices ginger
· 5 tablespoons of soft brown sugar to taste.
Simmer gently for around ½ hour but be careful not to let it boil. Serve and enjoy!
For an extra twist, add a shot of rum or sloe gin.
Martin Thatcher, fourth generation cider maker says, “There’s nothing more welcoming than the warming, spicy aroma of mulled cider on a cold, winter’s evening. This is a recipe our family has used for many years – we hope you enjoy it.”
