Day 4: Ginger Orange Spiced Apple Cider

At this time of year, its important to slow down and spend some quality time with friends and family. We developed this recipe as an alternative to the classic apple cider. It is lighter, less heavily spiced version. It has the wonderful flavour of fresh ginger and orange brandy. Don't worry about driving home after enjoying either, the alcohol is a small amount and will cook off while it simmers.

Serves 4.
4 cups unsweetened apple juice
2 sticks cinnamon, broken in half
4 slices of fresh ginger (about 1")
6 tablespoons orange liqueur (we use Orange and Brandy by Grand Marnier, or Cointreau)
1. In a saucepan, combine all ingredients.
2. Simmer over low heat for 20 minutes.
3. Remove cinnamon and ginger pieces and serve.
