Here's my home made mulled cider recipe - with a sloe gin kick.
You will need:
A litre of cider (any will do as it'll be boiled up! I used Thatchers Gold.)
200ml of sloe gin
2 or 3 cinnamon sticks or a tea spoon of ground cinnamon
Half a dozen cloves
A couple of slices of orange
A tea spoon of muscavado sugar or honey to taste
Pour your cider in to a large pan with the cinnamon and cloves. Allow it to heat slowly, stirring every few minutes, until it comes to a slight boil. This should take about 10 minutes.
Turn off the heat, add the orange slices and sloe gin, cover and allow it to simmer for another couple of minutes.
Ladle the cider in to mugs! And that's it! It's so warming and spicy, the perfect winter hot-cocktail! Be careful though - adding the sloe gin at the end means it doesn't burn off any alcohol content. I am definitely writing this with a woozy head :)
