Spiced Cider

Baby Kato


I love ciders and this is a nice one. It's all about personal preference...the honey does help to bring out the spices more and offers a smoother drink.

Don't forget to taste while it’s simmering to ensure the right ratio of sweet and tart.

If you would like a tarter cider then don't add the honey; but if you would like this drink to be sweeter, then please, add honey to taste. Either way, it is great.
