Hot Spiced Apple Drink (For Winters And Gloomy Rainy Days)

4.20 from 5 votes

This drink originating in Europe,most probably Russia is a very delicious apple beverage which is perfect for cold and rainy days.A cup of this taken in small sips drives away the cold,cures inner ailments like flu,cold and cough and enlivens your spirits.People preferring alcohol can use Apple Cider or you can even use fresh/packaged Apple Juice but I have made this with fresh red Apples and thoroughly enjoyed it on a Thursday of a very rainy week!Use fresh and whole spices for best results though you can also use them in powdered form.

I am a passionate foodie who loves to cook, serve and love to see people relishing my creations. Since the time I was small I used to wonder about the 'how' of things in the kitchen.

Then when I finally ventured as an unprofessional kitchen helper for my late grand-mother (a par excellent cook in her own generation) I was fascinated by the amount of stuff you could do to a simple milk and rice to form a most yummy pudding.

Here I am sharing my recipes with a will to learn from some and educate others as well!
