A seasonal recipe from Demarquette: Mulled Cider

We recently hosted a small gathering in our boutique to unveil our Festive window which features chocolate reindeers and a huge tower made entirely out of chocolate with sparkly lights to decorate it. Anyway, of course we had a feast of chocolates for everyone to taste but Marc also created a delicious Mulled Cider. Everyone loved it and so we thought we’d share our recipe for you to recreate it and serve it at your own parties and festive celebrations – or even just to warm up!

Ingredients

  • 1Ltr fresh apple juice
  • 3ltr dry apple cider from pure and not concentrated juice
  • 100ml calvados
  • Pinch of dried roses
  • Cardamom x 6 pods
  • Cloves x 4
  • Cinnamon 1tsp
  • Star anis x 3
  • Tasmanian Pepper x 10 corns
  • 1 Orange and 1 Lemon Peel with a little rind
  • Vanilla bean (use an empty pod)
  • 3 heaped tbp of honey (1/2 jar ish)

 Method

Gently dry roast all the spices then add the apple juice add the peels (not candied), roses and vanilla, bring to boil.

Cover with clingfilm and let it cool.

When cold (after approx. 2hrs) add cider, calvados and honey and film again and leave for 1 – 2hrs)

Then reheat gently and it’s ready to serve. So simple!
