As the chillier days come along, the colors, tastes, and aromas of Fall surround us. We turn to sweaters and scarves to snuggle for warmth. Or perhaps its time to start using the fireplace.
But warmth doesn’t only come from candles, fireplaces and big fluffy sweaters. Rather it also comes from the beverages that we all love because the aromas of Fall beverages are exotic and spicey!
These spicy-sweet drinks combine cinnamon, pumpkin, and other flavorful spices with the delicious warmth of caramel, honey, pomegranates and many other ingredients for beverages that are overflowing with zest.
Here are some delicious concoctions that by design are guaranteed to warm your heart and soul.
1 ½ quarts apple cider 1-quart cranberry juice cocktail 3 tablespoons firmly packed light brown sugar 7 whole cinnamon sticks 1 teaspoon ground allspice ½ teaspoon ground ginger Ground Cloves Freshly grated nutmeg Salt
Take a medium saucepan and whisk together cider, sugar, spices, and salt. Bring to a simmer over medium-low heat. Then remove from heat and pour in brandy, if desired. Strain mixture into a pitcher, discard solids. Serve in mugs, garnished with cinnamon sticks.
Put your sliced apples in the pitcher while saving about a ½ cup for garnish. Then, mix your cognac, apple cider, and dry wine. Stir thoroughly and fill your pitcher with ice to keep chilled. Fill your glasses, then top with your extra sliced apples and pomegranate seeds for the perfect garnish.
In a small airtight container, combine the herbs. Store in a cool, dry place for up to 6 months.
To prepare the tea: Place 1-1/2 teaspoons tea mix in a glass measuring cup. With the end of a wooden spoon handle, crush mixture until aromas are released. Add boiling water. Cover and steep for 10 minutes. Strain tea into a mug, discarding herbs. Stir in honey; serve with lemon.
While you boil the water, dip your glass rims in the warm caramel. Add your honey and fresh-squeezed lemon juice to each glass, and pour the fireball and boiling water over the top. Stir until the honey has dissolved, and top with your star anise.
