What’s better than sitting around on a frosty evening with a nice hot apple-y drink to warm the cockles of your heart? I use ginger liqueur in cakes and breads, but it’s especially fab in a bracing cold-weather toddy. If you’re feeling sniffly at all, it’s like the best-tasting liquid cough drop you’ve ever had, ushering you off to a deep and dreamless sleep. Hot apple cider with a dash of cinnamon and some grated fresh ginger are easy to pull together – and what a thoughtful surprise to find in a thermos packed for an afternoon at the big game. You’re going to love it!
