Chappy Hour: Mulled Cider and Maunder

December 19, 2017 by Tan Light

Our resident drinkspert Tan is back with a family-friendly mulled cider recipe to go with Claire Kelly's Maunder (Palimpsest Press), a suite of poems meditating on the nature of walking. We're going to take Claire's advice and "bed down 'til spring," and enjoy this non-alcoholic, hot holiday sipper after our own wintry maunders.

Orange, cinnamon, clove and liquorice: The warm spices typical of mulled drinks are a perfect reward after a snowy neighbourhood stroll, and a perfect match to the suite of poems I’ve selected this month from Claire Kelly’s Maunder (Palimpsest Press).

Mulling works great with wine, or advanced mixologists might want to try their hands at mulled gin this year. But today I plan to mull some fresh cider my whole family can enjoy!

We feel warm from head-to-toe, don't you? Keep sipping this spiced treat as you read through the longer excerpt of Claire Kelly's Maunder (clicking will begin a download of the PDF), and don't forget to check out the book, too.
