Things have suddenly got very festive around these parts! Whether it’s Christmas shopping or admiring the lights at the Merrion Hotel I’m suddenly very much in the Christmas spirit. And part of it could be down to the discovery of my new favourite Christmas drink: Kopparberg Spiced Apple.
The genius part is you can drink it chilled, like any bottle of Kopparberg (the Strawberry & Lime variety is an excellent beer-garden beverage) or you can cosy it up by heating it gently in a pan, and drinking it warm.
It’s delicious – spicy and sweet – and the perfect at-home alternative to mulled wine. You’ll get two mugs of warm cider from a €3 500ml bottle; look for it in Tesco (you can order it online here), Molloys and O’Donovans, or selected bars. You’ll also come across it at various Christmas markets including the ones in Belfast, Galway and St. Stephen’s Green – I highly recommend!
