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
  • allspice
  • nutmeg
  • cinnamon
  • hollow ram’s horn to drink this out of (optional)


  1. In an unheated saucepan, combine honey/brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, cloves, and cinnamon.
  2. Add cider, lemon juice, orange juice, and turn the stove to medium heat.
  3. 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.
  4. Simmer gently until heated through – do not boil.
  5. Serve warm.  Goes well with whip cream, Irish drinking songs, and stories of times long ago.
