To ring in the first day of fall, I chose a spiced cider recipe for the drink of the week. This recipe serves about six people. For our underage readers, just don’t add the brandy to the cider.
- Five cups of apple cider
- One cinnamon stick
- One whole clove
- One orange slice
- One lemon slice
- One-half cup of brandy
- Six cinnamon sticks for garnish
Combine the apple cider, one cinnamon stick, one whole clove, the orange slice and the lemon slice in a medium saucepan then bring to a boil. Cover the pan, reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Then, strain the cider mixture through a sieve into a bowl and discard solids. Stir in brandy and serve warm. Garnish each glass with a cinnamon stick.
