  • 125ml (1/2 cup) apple juice
  • 100g (3 1/2 oz) white sugar
  • 1 small stick cinnamon
  • 3 cloves
  • 2.5 cm (1″) fresh ginger
  • 1 large unwaxed orange, sliced in rings
  • 1 unwaxed lemon, sliced in rings
  • 1 litre (4 cups) good quality cider
  • 125ml (1/2 cup) brandy


  1. Place all the ingredients apart from the cider and brandy into a medium sized saucepan.
  2. Heat on medium until the sugar has dissolved, stirring well.
  3. Lower the heat and simmer for 2 minutes.
  4. Add the cider and brandy and continue to heat on low heat. After 5 minutes or so, it should have warmed through and be ready to be served. I like to leave it on the lowest heat setting and top up my glass as needed.
