It’s the first advent today, so time to get into the Xmas spirit! I want to kick off my festive recipe suggestions with a super yummy alternative to mulled wine: a spicy apple drink. Infused with classic Xmas spices including star anise and cinnamon, and spiked with a shot of whisky, this is an ideal winter warmer!
I developed this recipe for Cactus News magazine as part of their Food Heroes project, in which they showcase local producers whose products you can buy at Cactus. This recipe is to go with a Stollen from Wofgang von der Heide, whose family has been baking gourmet Stollen for 6 generations. You can read more on Wolfgang von der Heide’s Stollen production here.
