Cinnamon Warmer

Tis the season for fire places to be lit, the air to be brisk in the morning and for a soothing drink to make us feel warm all over. The vitamins in this drink will invigorate your bloodstream to face the elements outside in the cold.  This is also a great drink to have sit on you're stove top on a low flame to make the whole house smell of cinnamon, ginger and all the other ingredients.

God bless and Cheers,

Cinnamon Warmer

1 1/4 oz Calvados ( Apple Brandy)
1/2 oz dark rum
3 1/2 oz clear apple juice
Juice of half a lemon
3 slices of fresh ginger
1 teaspoon of clear honey
3 cloves
1 small cinnamon stick

Pour all of the liquid, including the honey into a saucepan and heat slowly. Do not boil.  Place the spices in a muslin cloth, tie the top in a knot and place in the saucepan.  (This provides the flavor and avoids having to scoop the bits out when the drink is ready) Float a few twists of lemon and orange peel in the mixture.  This will give a slight citrus taste.  Strain in the glass and enjoy.
