2 cups apple cider or apple juice
2 tbsp dried fennel
1 tbsp dried hibiscus
½ tsp ground turmeric
3 dried citrus wedges
Bring ingredients to a simmer over low heat and let steep for 5-7 minutes. Strain out dried ingredients and pour into a mug. Garnish with a dried citrus slice.
I LOVE holiday drinks, but always want to try something new. The first drink of our 24 Days of Spirits is a delicious Winter Spice Apple Cider. I love the fennel in this drink, it gives it an unexpected, but delicious flavor. To get the best flavor out of the dried ingredients, muddle them in a small bowl to release more of the flavors when steeping.
When heating up your apple cider, be careful not to let it boil, it will be too hot to drink. An enjoyable temperature for cider is around 160 degrees F.
