This weeks Martha Mondays project was chosen by Teresa of http://homemadeiowalife.blogspot.com/. She chose Warm Vanilla Cider from the October issue of Living (which I can’t wait to get my hands on).
I think this is our first drink that we have made and I was excited (although I did check with Brette to see if apple cider was alcoholic as it is in the UK and was informed that it wasn’t. This explains last Christmas when I made a spiced apple cider with alcoholic cider and then added brandy – there were a couple of merry afternoons during Christmas!!!
I had the ingredients that the recipe called for but had decided that I would not add the addition of cream or the honeyed walnuts as I didn’t have the time and it would have ruined all my hard work of dieting.
This was good. The recipe was easy to follow and it tasted good (although I couldn’t taste any nutmeg). With the addition of brandy (I didn’t have bourbon). I had a very merry afternoon and will make this recipe again.
No picture this week I am afraid, as I drank it pretty quickly!
