Firstly I bring you....
Mmmm... Just looking at it makes me feel all toasty and warm inside.
Shattered I couldn't host a Christmas in July feast this year.
(Damn it, if I can't drink with you then neither will you - Baahumbug!)
And lastly I give you this latest offering from Rekorderlig.
But it's not just any winter cider.
.... It's one you heat up
..... and drink warm
This could be good ... or it could suck.
Right now I really don't care.
In my mind I'm imagining apple, cinnamon & vanilla flavoured angels dancing naked on my tongue but basically at this point it could taste like stewed socks and I'd still happily chug.
Well it sounds as though this will be my first science experiment - boiling something you don't want to boil sounds harder than it seems. They say you want it to be hot, not warm, but not too hot as you'll cook off all the alcohol. Kinda defeats the purpose if that happens I suppose.
Hmm ok so maybe I need to invest in a cooking thermometer... how else am I supposed to know before it gets to 77degrees?
Or maybe I'll just try the basic rule of thumb. Stick your finger in it and if its "almost" too hot to do that... then I should be right. Right?
Well, we just won't know till next week now will we.
Unless of coarse you'd all like to try one of the above this weekend and let me know how you go?...
nah, didn't think so. Fine I'll be your guinea pig. Just don't expect an unbiased opinion, remember I've been deprived.
Thinking of drinking
