Hot spiced cider

Keep warm on Bonfire Night the most delicious way possible, with a hot, steaming cup of gorgeously spiced cider. Flavoured with cinnamon, cloves and star anise, this cosy cocktail takes just 15 minutes to make and is a great Bonfire Night party idea.

  1. Heat the vintage cider, cinnamon sticks, cloves and star anise in a large pan for a few minutes, then add the ginger syrup, the orange juice and slices and the sugar.
  2. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 5 minutes. To serve, ladle into glasses and add an extra cinnamon stick stirrer, orange slice and star anise to each, if you like.
