At this time of year I sometimes go a little wild, normally a tea-totaller last year I drank three mulled ciders over the festive season. Well I always think mulled cider would taste nicer without the alcohol. So… mulled apple juice!
- 500ml (ish) of apple juice
- A cinnamon stick
- 2/3 of an orange
- A few cloves
- Star Anise
I put the cinnamon stick, the cloves, and slices of orange in a pan, then poured in the apple juice. I would have also put in the star anise but boyfriend doesn’t like anniseed (madness!) so I just the star anise in my mug.
I turned up the heat and simmered for about 5mins (may have accidentally boiled over at one point…). Then ladeled into my mugs. It was pretty good. Next time I would add more of the cloves, cinnamon, and star anise to the pan to give it a bit more oomf.
