On the sixth day of Christmas…
This one is bittersweet as it is the final batch of cider from Distillery Lane Ciderworks, provided through our milk delivery service from October through December. It’s the only juice we regularly drink, and the toddler is quite infatuated with his “appy cidey.” This version is for the grown-ups only, though of course you can simply omit the rum for your little ones!
Recipe: Gingered Apple Cider
- 1 quart fresh apple cider
- 1/2 cup ginger simple syrup (or a peeled chunk of fresh ginger)
- 2 clementines, zest and juice
- 2 cinnamon sticks
Instructions: Combine ingredients in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce to low and simmer for 10 minutes. Strain and pour into mugs. Add rum if desired, and enjoy!
