Warm & Spicy Apple Drink




I'm not a huge fan of mulled wine. It's often too sweet or too strong and kind of stale. But the other day when visiting a friend of mine and her family, she had made this warm apple drink which was so delicious and fresh tasting. I decided to prepare it for this Xmas.  


Warm & spicy apple drink

1 l apple juice (unsweetend)
1,5 cinnamon stick
1-2 tsp cloves
3-5 pc star anise
1 tsp ginger powder
1/2 tsp allspice (whole ones)
1/2 orange (freshly squeesed)

Heat the apple juice in a saucepand along with the spices. Bring to the boil for 5-7 minutes. Add the orange juice. Serve it hot!





(FI) En ole mikään suuri glögin ystävä. Glögi on helposti liian makeaa tai liian vahvaa tai joyenkin tunkkaista. Mutta muutama päivä sitten kyläillessäni ystäväni ja hänen perheensä luona, ihastuin tähän ystäväni tekemään herkulliseen ja raikkaan makuiseen lämpimään omenajuomaan tai siis glögiin. Päätin valmistaa sitä myös itse nyt joulun aikaan. 


Lämmin & mausteinen omenajuoma

1 l omenamehua (makeuttamatonta)
1,5 kanelitanko
1-2 tl neilikkaa
3-5 kpl tähtianista
1 tl inkiväärijauhetta
1/2 tl maustepippuria (kokonaisia)
1/2 oappelsiini (puristettu mehu)

Lämmitä omenamehu kattilassa yhdessä mausteiden kanssa. Anna kiehua 5-7 minuuttia. Lisää lopuksi appelsiinimehu. Tarjoa kuumana!









Warm and spicy apple drink is not just a xmas drink but fantastic for the whole winter season!
