#1. Hot Mulled Cider
This Hot Mulled Cider recipe is adapted from Rachel’s Favourite Food for Friends by Rachel Allen.
It is nicely spiced with citrus flavours, and is a non-alcoholic drink that the whole family can enjoy at Christmas time.
We love the idea that they have used, to colour sugar green and then dip your glass rim into the coloured sugar before serving.
It’s ideal too as you can make it ahead of time and freeze before adding the last ingredient.
Mix in 1/3 cup of Nutella to 1 1/2 cups milk and bring to a simmer, whisking until smooth.
Serve with whipped cream and/or mini marshmallows. Cinnamon stick stirrers add a bit of Christmas spice flavour too.
This Pomegranate Soda drink from Marthastewart.com is very simple to make and is an elegant different drink to serve.
You could serve with maraschino cherries or rim the glass with lime and serve with a slice of lime.
Another super easy non-alcoholic drinks recipe, this Spiced Cranberry Cider from Bhg.com also has a surprise ingredient.
Ladle into mugs to serve and garnish with lime slices for a splash of alternative colour.
