Instructions – How to make it:
- Halve the orange and insert cloves into each half.
- In a large saucepan, combine the studded orange halves, apple juice, cinnamon stick, thinly sliced ginger, crushed cardamom pods, and a dash of nutmeg. Heat on medium-high until it reaches a boil. Remove from heat and let it sit for 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.
- Use a fine-mesh strainer to filter out the spices and orange, pouring the liquid into a pitcher. Place the pitcher in the fridge to cool down.
- Once chilled, blend in the apple cider. Serve in glasses filled with thinly sliced red apple, freshly torn mint leaves, and ice cubes.
