It’s more than just alliteration; it’s a statement, a proclamation that Thursdays are when the weekend should really start. Kicking it off right is the key, and what better way than with a cocktail that not only takes the edge off, but tastes good too. Last time we chimed in with a fall-inspired mojito; this week we’re back with one of our favorite drinks for the winter.
There’s something warm and fuzzy about ladling cider into a mug — apple, ginger and cardamom perfuming the air with their sweet and spiced aromas. But stir in a little brown sugar, a few clementines and cloves, and top it all off with a healthy dose of dark rum and you’ve upgraded the comforting winter sip to something a bit more buzz-worthy.
Nigella’s Mulled Cider is the sort of drink you want to wrap your hands around when you’re cooped up on the couch, cuddled by the fire, or outside on a cold night. So warm up a pot, add an extra dash of rum if it’s been that kind of day, and toast to the season. Bottoms up, folks.
