Ingredients

  • 2 litres medium-dry cider (see food team’s tip)
  • 125ml apple liqueur (optional)
  • 8-10 chai teabags
  • 2-4 tbsp soft brown sugar
  • Thinly pared zest 1 orange
  • Thinly pared zest 1 lemon
  • 1 apple, quartered, cored and thinly sliced

Method

  1. Put the cider, apple liqueur (if using), teabags, 2 tbsp of the brown sugar and half the pared orange and lemon zest in a saucepan. Bring slowly to the boil, stirring, then simmer very gently for 2 minutes.
  2. Remove the pan from the heat and leave to cool for 15 minutes (see Make Ahead). Taste and add more sugar if you like a sweeter taste, then serve in heatproof glasses (or mugs) garnished with apple slices and the remaining zests.

  1. For a hot drink that’s not boozy, this is equally good made with apple juice.

  2. Mull the cider and cool a day ahead, then gently reheat to serve.
