Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Servings 6


  • 400 ml unsweetened apple juice
  • 400 ml unsweetened cranberry juice
  • 500 ml dry cider
  • 100 ml peach brandy (optional)
  • 1 small lemon thinly sliced
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 6 cloves
  • 4 tbsp clear honey
  • 6 South African plums pitted and sliced


  1. In a large saucepan, put the apple juice, cranberry juice, cider, peach brandy (if using), lemon slices, cinnamon sticks, cloves and honey. Heat until just simmering, then turn the heat to very low.

  2. After 5 minutes, add the plum slices and continue to simmer on a very low heat for a further 15 minutes. 

  3. Ladle into heatproof glasses and serve.

  4. Cook’s tips: For a non-alcoholic version use 700ml of both apple and cranberry juice and omit the cider and peach brandy, and add a couple of spiced apple tea bags about 10 minutes before serving.

  5. Cook’s tips: Did you know you can use a slow cooker to make this and keep it warm? Simply put all the ingredients into your slow cooker, then cover and cook on high for 1½ -2 hours or 2½ - 3 hours on low.
