This is a wonderful mead – like Autumn beverage, which is also good warm or cold. It tastes like all the favorite traditional scents of fall and is great for Samhain or Thanksgivings Celebrations.
6 cups of hot apple juice
2 Tbsp. maple syrup
2 tsp honey
2 bay leaves
3 – 4 tsp of Green Spirit’s Cider Mate
Juice of one orange
cinnamon stir sticks optional
Directions: Mix syrup and honey with the apple juice until dissolved. Add your spices and allow infusing like a tea until cool. Strain off whole spices, adding orange juice before freezing. Finish by following the general directions for mead. Possible garnishes include rum sauce, a slice of apple or orange or a little sweet cream.
