Now that autumn is here, it’s a great time to sip on a hot coffee beverage that incorporates the flavor of the season. Normandy coffee is named after the region in France known for its apple orchards. The drink consists of coffee, apple cider, brown sugar and spices. Try making this at home to fill your kitchen with the aroma of fall.
- 1 cup of brewed coffee
- 1 cup of apple cider
- tbsp brown sugar
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- 6 thin orange slices
- Pinch of nutmeg and cardamom if handy
Here are the directions for making it on the stove:
Combine ingredients into a saucepan and bring to medium heat. Reduce to low and let simmer for ten minutes with boiling. Strain and drink.
