Hot Spiced Apple & Brandy Drink

Sunday morning was magnificent – flat calm on the river and sunny – so we put our driving hats on and went for a Sunday drive down the channel. We stopped at the Woodbridge jetty for a fish, but I didn’t even look like catching anything so I soon canned that and went looking lunch. It is a real larder down there, we found honey, jams, cheese, trout and heaps more. We stopped in at Grandvewe Cheeses for a quick look around – but more on that later.

Coincidentally this week Catherine and I used pretty much the same ingredients to make different things. We have been wanting to do a drink of the site for a while now and being winter this seemed like the perfect option.

4x Cups of Apple Juice
1x Cinnamon Stick
3x Slithers of Ginger (about the size of a 20 cent coin)
3x Cloves
1x Zest of a Lemon (about 1 strip the length of the lemon)
Juice of 1/2 a Lemon
1x Tsp Honey
4 Decent shots/lugs of Brandy

1. Throw every thing apart from the brandy into a pot and simmer for 45-60mins – or until the flavors of the spices come out.
2. Add the brandy and serve hot.

Too easy.

    Beautiful. I’m melting over in the August heat in Tuscany, so seeing these cool, fresh images is real relief! Looking forward to the autumn to try this drink…

    The little lamb is too too cute! And what a gorgeous farm stand!

    Like Emiko in Tuscany, we’re sweating in Kansas, so “come on, autumn!” so I can try this recipe!

    Breathtaking photos, as always. This site has quickly become one of the ones I save til last in my RSS.. the one I want to savour the most. Thanks for the regular dose of island beauty.
