Allotment and Smallholders Hot Cider Punch.
You don't need to have a smallholding or allotment to enjoy this. But I think you would appreciate it after an hard few hours weeding or tending to the livestock. There are lots of apples about at the moment. Why not use them to make this drink?
Have a go at this recipe for a great warming alcoholic drink:
4 small apples
Cut them into quarters and remove any pips. Add half a Cinnamon stick. About ten Cloves. Two tablespoons of Sugar (white or brown), 2 tablespoons of Honey and 4 litres of Cider. Cheap stuff will suffice. Warm slowly until it starts bubbling. Taste it and add more Sugar or Honey if it needs it!
Do you have a hot punch recipe?
