Make Your Own: Spiced Ginger Beer

Spiced ginger beer is a delicious treat at Christmas. It can be made ahead of time and stored for up to 2 days in the fridge (leave the spice sachet in the ginger beer to intensify the flavour) then either heat or chill when ready to serve! Voila!


Combine all ingredients in a saucepan, and heat just barely to a simmer over medium heat (be careful not to boil off the alcohol if serving alcoholic version). Reduce heat to low, cover, and let the ginger beer warm for between 30 minutes to an hour. Strain, sweeten if required and serve warm with fresh ginger slices, or chill and serve as a punch with 500ml of sweet orange juice, mint and plenty of ice.

Spiced Ginger Beer Punch

Make as above, however once the ginger beer has finished infusing, leave to get to room temperature and then chill in the fridge for a minimum of 2 hours. Once cold, remove spice sachet, pour into a jug or punch bowl of ice adding 500ml of sweet orange juice and fresh mint then serve immediately.

Properties of the Healing Spices

"Cloves and ginger are especially good for warding off respiratory ailments and any cold or flu symptoms. They also help relieve headaches, nausea, muscle spasms, tension, & nerve pain. Cinnamon is very good for reducing inflammation in the body making it helpful for people with autoimmune disorders such as fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. Cinnamon also has the amazing ability to stop yeast infections, candida, and menstrual cramps. Star anise is highly beneficial in the treatment of asthma, bronchitis, rheumatism, back pain, shingles, herpes, halitosis, and sinus infections. It is also commonly used as a digestive aid and can help to relieve gas, constipation, cramping, bloating, heartburn, and indigestion." Anthony William

As well as cloves, ginger, cinnamon and star anise the Artisane Mulled Cider Spice Sachet also contains coriander seeds that are used medicinally world wide. Infusions made with coriander seeds support digestive function, help combat proliferation of bad bacteria from food borne pathogens and help to reduce bloating.
