The Medieval and Renaissance Faire season is almost upon us! Let’s get into the spirit with this recipe – a (nonalcoholic) drink fit for a king!
Gather ’round the fire, and I’ll tell ye how to make it…
Makes 2 servings.
- 3 tablespoons honey or brown sugar
- 2 cups apple cider
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon orange juice
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
- hollow ram’s horn to drink this out of (optional)
- In an unheated saucepan, combine honey/brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, cloves, and cinnamon.
- Add cider, lemon juice, orange juice, and turn the stove to medium heat.
- If you wanted to be really accurate, you could tie whole cloves, whole cinnamon, and whole allspice, all up in a small piece of cloth and let that sit in the cider mixture while it heats.
- Simmer gently until heated through – do not boil.
- Serve warm. Goes well with whip cream, Irish drinking songs, and stories of times long ago.
