Hello everyone, today’s recipe is for Cranberry cider, a perfect festive drink idea.

Happy Birthday to my Dad!  This is the first birthday in as far back as I can remember that I haven’t seen him and more importantly baked him a birthday cake.  Luckily it is not long to Christmas and we can get together as a family again.  This year he has to make do with postal cupcakes and a zoom call.

Christmas is all about making sure you have time to enjoy a festive drink and watch nonsense on the television.  This cranberry cider is the perfect drink you can easily mix together in under five minutes.  It is a bubbly mix of apple cider, cranberry juice, orange juice and a splash of lemon juice.  I like to serve this over ice with a sprig of fresh rosemary which adds an extra bit of fragrance.
