Hot toddy with bay leaves and orange

Bay leaves in a drink sounds strange, but don’t worry – they add a wonderfully subtle, fragrant note

Ingredients

  • 1 litre medium dry cider
  • 1 dessert apple
  • 1 orange
  • 6 bay leaves, torn
  • 2 tsp coriander seeds
  • 2-3 tbsp clear honey

Step by step

Get ahead

Infuse a few hours ahead. Reheat gently to serve.

  1. Pour the cider into a pan. Quarter the apple, remove the core then slice each piece fairly thinly.

  2. Pare thin strips of zest from the orange and add these, then peel away the pith, slice up the orange or break it into segments and add these too. Add the bay, coriander seeds and honey (to taste) and set over the campfire or a hob.

  3. Bring the cider just up to a gentle simmer then remove from the heat. Let the cider stand for a while to help all the flavours infuse. Ladle into cups or heatproof glasses while still warm, and enjoy.
