Martha Mondays – Warm Vanilla Cider

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!

Thanks Teresa.

  1. I'm looking forward to making it when we get apple cider down here in Florida. (I do like the hard cider, can't imagine it with brandy, lol)
