Carlene’s Broken Leg

I think this sounds wonderful for a chilly fall evening…

Pour very hot apple cider over two fingers of ginger brandy in a coffee cup. Add a cinnamon stick and a thin wedge of orange; too fat a hunk of orange ruins it. Don sheepskin slippers, find comforter and soft seat and, if possible, a working fireplace. Caveat: If you’re like me and occasionally find yourself “ingredient-challenged,” keep in mind that substituting something else for the brandy will radically change the drink; there is some je ne sais quois about the symbiosis of apples and ginger that should not be monkeyed with.
