Autumnal Spiced Cider

Friday Night Drinks for grown ups only!

When I worked in London BC (before children) we would always go for Friday Night Drinks after work. This was the highlight of my week where my colleagues and I would let down our hair and wash away the stresses of the working week.

Fast forward a decade (and a bit) and I do still love Friday Night Drinks. I might be into nutrition but I do love a treat too. Now we have them at home when my husband gets home from work and the children are tucked up safely in bed.

This Autumnal Spiced Cider is ideal for wrapping gloved hands around and being outside.



2 british apples

2 tsp caster sugar

2 cinnamon sticks

1 star anise

1 orange, zest and juice

  3. Add the cinnamon sticks and star anise

  4. Add the cider and heat gentle for 3-4 minutes, without letting it boil.
