Steaming Hot Apple Cider (Non-alcoholic)
This recipe takes less than ten minutes to make, and is a real tummy warmer on a cold Christmas Eve! Just have everything ready to assemble before your guests arrive!
You just need a bottle of apple cider you can get anywhere in Mexico, and combine it with some cinnamon, cloves, allspice berries and Orange peel in a large saucepan, then heat.
Simmer about 5 minutes, or until the flavor of the spices and Orange peel are infused into the cider. Pour into mugs and serve immediately, garnished with sliced Orange.
Mexican Hot Chocolate
Start your Christmas morning with a warm mug of Mexican hot chocolate, a richer, spicier version of the American package of hot cocoa.
Traditional Mexican hot chocolate is made with Mexican chocolate, a spicy type of chocolate that exudes cacao, almond and cinnamon flavors.
Whisking melted Mexican chocolate with milk or cream and flavoring it with a pinch of cayenne or chili powder makes one eye-opening Christmas morning treat, and don’t forget to enjoy it with a piece of “Pan Dulce”.
Ponche is a traditional Christmas punch served hot during the holidays. It is often made with piloncillo, an unrefined sugar, and a variety of fruit, but we’ve simplified this recipe for the American kitchen, using brown sugar and streamlining the fruit.
In a large stockpot over high heat, combine apples, guavas, raisins, prunes, oranges, cinnamon and water.
Bring fruit mixture to a boil, and then lower heat. Cover pot, and simmer for one hour.
Stir in sugar, cover pot, and simmer for 10 minutes. Taste and add more sugar, if desired.
Serve ponche hot. (You can add some rum if want ponche to have an extra “kick”).
