Stovies Food Favourites #4: Rekorderlig Winter Cider

Cold wintery evenings call for cozying up by the fire with a warming tipple. You might fancy a Hot Toddie or mulled wine but in Stovies house nothing beats a mulled cider.

We stumbled upon this during a recent supermarket jaunt and were mightily impressed, despite having been prepared for something rather unpleasant – previous experience of pre mulled wine / spiced loo cleaner being our reference point.

Rekorderlig’s everyday cider is a pleasant and crisp tipple which we enjoyed plenty of at Taste of Edinburgh this summer. The addition of vanilla and cinnamon is a pleasant evolution. It makes for a much sweeter taste which doesn’t work amazingly when drunk cold, hot however is another story. Fragrant, fruity, homely and festive, it’s a hug in a mug.

We tried tarted ours up a little by adding a star anise and some grated nutmeg whilst we were warming it in the pan. You could add any spice combo you like really but the beauty of this beverage is that it is ready to go provided you have a bottle opener to hand. You could even do the warming in the microwave.

We made our discovery in Lidl setting us back abut £1.50. You may find it in other large supermarkets and local wine shoppes. We’ve even heard that it’s being served in bars around town.
