Warm Spicy Apple & Carrot Drink
2 large glasses
We don’t boil the carrot juice since we prefer this drink with a fresh twist. It also looks prettier that way. You can of course heat both juices together if you prefer it steaming hot and slightly sweeter. .
2 cups apple juice, around 6 apples
1 cinnamon stick
2 star anises
2 allspice seeds
1/2 tsp cardamom seeds
1 sprig fresh rosemary
1 inch (2,5 cm) fresh ginger or more to taste
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
Juice the apples in a juice machine. Place the juice in saucepan together with all the spices, cover with a lid. Bring to a boil and let simmer for 1-2 minutes. Turn off the heat and let steep, covered for 5-10 minutes, then strain in a fine sieve. Juice the carrots and ginger in the juice machine. Pour the warm apple juice in the glasses, add the freshly juiced carrot juice and stir with a spoon to combine. Sprinkle some ground cinnamon and nutmeg on top before serving.
Ps. If you are up for it you can also turn it into a winter punch, by simply adding 1 part rhum to 3 parts juice.
