Beachhutcook's Rosehip and Apple Toddy4

Rosehip and Apple Toddy

Our beach hut is now settled in its temporary home in our back garden.  We are quite enjoying the luxury of cooking on the firepit not far from our house; feels like playing with a giant dolls house. 

The lure of cooking outside while we potter about the hut and garden makes us happy and our kids, who thought our idea of the having the beach hut in the garden rather silly, now have grand plans of parties with their mates around the firepit.

So, if you have equally as silly plans on cooking outside with friends and family then why not give yourselves a head start to the party with this warming Rosehip and Apple toddy made with my homemade Apple Strudel Vodka.  You can make this now and it only takes a couple of days to steep (longer if you want) and how about that for a festive start to the season.

We made our own rosehip syrup from dog rose hips from our garden but readymade versions are quite easy to find in good delicatessens and farm shops.

Although I cooked this over fire, you can easily make this on the hob or a portable gas camping stove. 

Are you planning any outside festive fun?  I would love to hear from you.

    Oh, I like the sound of this, I’ve saved the previous Apple Strudel Vodka and will be saving this. Warming drinks are so welcome at this time of year and something a little different is always good.

      Thanks Gemma, it was really tasty. I felt a little giddy afterwards as we guzzled it quite quickly!

    That sounds so lovely. Lots of vitamin C in rosehips too isn’t there?
