Have you tried our aromatic mulled pear cider?


  • 18 cloves
  • 6 large strips of orange zest
  • 1 bottle of red wine, such as claret
  • Pared zest of 1 lemon
  • 3 tbsp Billington’s Demerara Sugar
  • 5cm cinnamon stick
  • 15g ginger, thinly sliced and bruised
  • 2 tbsp orange-flavoured liqueur, such as Grand Marnier or Cointreau


  1. Push 3 cloves into each strip of orange.
  2. Mix the clove-studded orange strips and all the other ingredients together in a large pan. Half fill the wine bottle with water and add to the pan or add 375ml water. Bring up to simmering point on the hob. Barely simmer for 15-20 minutes – do not let it boil or all the alcohol will evaporate. Serve in slightly warmed, heatproof cups or glasses.
