I really fancy serving up this mulled apple and ginger recipe over Christmas.
• 2L cloudy apple juice
• 2 thumb-sized pieces of ginger, sliced into thin strips
• 2 ripe pears, sliced
• 2 cinnamon sticks
• 4 juniper berries
• 3 tbsp Demerara sugar
• Juice of 4 limes, zest of 2, plus extra limes to garnish
Put all the ingredients except one of the pears in a large saucepan. Simmer until the sugar dissolves. Ladle into glasses, garnish with the remaining sliced pear, lime slices and extra lime zest.
