Cooking Light OCTOBER 2007

  • Yield: 6 servings (serving size: about 2/3 cup)

Ingredients

  • 5 cups apple cider
  • 1 (3-inch) cinnamon stick
  • 1 whole clove
  • 1 (1/2-inch-thick) orange slice
  • 1 (1/2-inch-thick) lemon slice
  • 1/2 cup brandy
  • 6 (3-inch) cinnamon sticks (optional)

Preparation

Combine cider, cinnamon stick, clove, orange slice, and lemon slice in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 30 minutes. Strain cider mixture through a sieve into a bowl; discard solids. Stir in brandy. Serve warm. Garnish each serving with 1 cinnamon stick, if desired.

Note:

Steep the cider a day ahead of time, keep it refrigerated, and then reheat just before serving. For a nonalcoholic version, simply omit the brandy.
