Ginger, nutmeg and brown sugar lend familiar flavors, while sherry adds a nutty note and apple brandy boosts the intensity.


12 ounces fresh apple cider
2 cinnamon sticks
2 thin slices of fresh gingerroot
Freshly grated nutmeg
2 teaspoons firmly packed light brown sugar
3 ounces dry sherry
2 ounces apple brandy


  1. Put cider, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and brown sugar in a small saucepan over high heat. Bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to low and cook  5 minutes.
