Summer cider cup

Need something refreshing in the hot weather (or after scything)? Here is a simple recipe which works well with any well-flavoured dry cider (such as a Mosser cider, of course).

2/3rds chilled dry 100% juice cider

1/3rd chilled lemonade

splash of apple aperitif, cider brandy or calvados (optional)

a splash of blackcurrant juice (microwave a few blackcurrants for 10 secs then strain, or use ribena if you don’t have blackcurrants)

Mix and serve.
