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.
Ingredients 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
Method 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.
