Mixo-logic’s Paul Lambert was interviewed by Tom Dunne on Newstalk Radio this morning. Paul discussed some Christmas drinks that people could try over the festive period. The recipes for which are below:-
2 TEASPOONS OF HONEY
1 BAKED APPLE
METHOD:- Heat a glass with a little boiling water. Discard then add the calvados and honey. Top with about 100mls boiling water and stir until the honey is dissolved. Cut a wedge of baked apple, dust with grated nutmeg and drop into the drink. Serve with a napkin
HOT SPICED BUTTERED RUM
50MLS DARK RUM
1 TSP SPICED BUTTER
METHOD:-heat a glass with boiling water. discard. Add the rum and butter to the heated glass. Top with about 100mls boiling water. Add a little sugar to your taste(1-2teaspoons) Stir until ingredients dissolve. Serve with a napkin and perhaps a little dark chocolate,yum!
Many recipes for mulled wine differ but the basic contents are as follows. You need red wine(about 2/3btls,brandy,port,grand marnier/cointreau, chopped citrus fruits i.e. lemons,limes,oranges, cloves,cinnamon sticks,chopped apple,7up. Basically put the wine in a big saucepan on a low heat. Add the brandy port and orange liquer to your own taste, throw in some cloves and cinnamon. Add the fruit and cook on a low heat until nice and warm. Be careful not to use too high a heat. Then my advice is to leave it overnight to allow the flavours to develop. heat again when serving, add a little 7up for sweetness and serve with a napkin.
Merry Xmas everyone!!!
