As the season softly changes from summer to fall, we wanted to bring out one of our favs over here at Philosophie HQ. This is the best afternoon superfood sipper while the weather is still warm and sunny over in LA but you’re dreaming of cozy sweater weather. This high vibe beverage can easily transition from a hot to a cold drink depending on your mood!
This take on a traditional apple cider has all the best fall spices with our Cacao Bee Honey for a delicious energy boost and nutrients. Drink it iced for a cool + refreshing burst of energy while enjoying the vibrant, cozy flavor profile. This cooling cup of cider has added benefits of being super healing and immune-boosting because it's full of vitamin C, vitamin K, magnesium, calcium and fiber!
5 apples (juiced; Granny Smith apples make a deliciously tart juice while Gala apples make a sweeter juice!)
1 orange (juiced)
5 whole cloves
5 cinnamon sticks
5 whole cardamom pods
2 star anise
1/2 to 1-inch piece of fresh ginger (grated; amount based on how spicy you like it)
½ tsp fresh lemon zest
1 tbsp Cacao Bee Honey
ice (6 cubes per glass)
Add the orange juice, cloves, cinnamon sticks, cardamom pods, star anise, ginger, lemon zest, and manuka honey in a saucepan (feel free to play around with the amount of spices to get it to your liking!). Cover and heat on medium-low heat for about 15-20 minutes. Remove from heat for 15 minutes, add the fresh apple juice, and then strain. Pour into your favorite glass, toss in some ice, add a straw, and ENJOY! Leave out the ice if you want it warm!
