Brandied Chai Cider

Serves 8 to 10

We like to keep the cider in a saucepan on the stove on the lowest heat possible (or keep it in the carafe of a drip coffee maker set to the warm setting). The result is a warm spiced-apple perfume that smells one hundred times better than any potpourri or a scented candle. Cider is the absolute essence of the countryside in the fall and winter.Brandied Chai Cider 2 (1)

Ingredients

1 gallon/3.85 liters apple cider or apple juice, 1/2 cup/200 grams packed brown sugar, 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger, 3 apples (preferably Pippins or Granny Smiths), thinly sliced and cut crosswise into bite-sized pieces, 4 Keenu oranges (seeded and cut into eight pieces each), 3 cinnamon sticks, 2 teaspoons whole cloves, 1 teaspoon freshly ground black peppercorns, 3 Darjeeling tea bags, Cognac

Preparation: 

Combine the cider, brown sugar, ginger, apples, and kumquats in a crock pot. Wrap the oranges, cinnamon sticks, cloves, and peppercorns in a large piece of cheesecloth and tie to prevent from opening. Cook on the lowest possible heat until the apples are completely tender and soft, 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Once you are ready to serve, steep the tea bags in the hot cider for 10 minutes. Remove and discard along with the spice packet. Ladle the cider into mugs with a shot of cognac. Top each cup with some of the apples and oranges and serve.

Three’s A Charm
Ingredients
4 cubes of Dark Chocolate  (55-75%)
Small shot of Espresso
45ml Brandy (even better if you have Brandy infused with vanilla bean)Three is a charm
Preparation:
Take the smallest cafe glass you can find. One that can fit a double shot if espresso and a tad more. Add the coarsely chopped dark chocolate to it and pour a hot shot of espresso over it.  Give it a swirl and top with the brandy.  Stir and serve.
