Make your own spices hot drinks
I love the taste and smell of fall and winter spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. There’s something both festive and comforting about them. A cup of cider heated with these aromatic spices is the perfect beverage this time of year. It warms you up and smells oh-so-yummy.
This mixture is great to have on hand throughout the fall and winter for making up quick cups or big batches of spiced cider. Or spiced anything, really. This mix is delicious added to coffee, cocoa, tea, wine.
This mix also makes great gifts
Step 1. Assemble the ingredients:
- ground dry spices–ginger, cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, mace; (or pumpkin pie spice, which is a combination of these spices)
- choose from these sweeteners (all dissolve well and taste similar): dark brown sugar, or coconut palm sugar
Step 2. Combine the mix ingredients.
You can whisk these together by hand in a bowl; but it mixes easier and thoroughly in a food processor. Just add the brown sugar (or other sweetener) and spices to the food processor bowl and pulse until everything is well mixed.
fast and easy! Store your mix in an airtight container. It’s ready to scoop into a cup or pot on the stove or crock pot of cider, or whatever hot beverage you choose. I store mine in mason jars.
