Drink This Weekend Edition: Cooler weather calls for hot mulled cider by the fire – and we’ve got the just thing

October 14th 03:10pm, 2011

101311_teaSure, by day it still feels like summer, but once the sun sets, night temperatures dip into the 40s and we’re ready to bring out the sweaters – and the cider. Hot cider, that is, like the scenty stuff that makes you want to wrap your hands around the mug and sip slowly near a warm fire. Starting this weekend, you can do exactly that at Fox & Hounds Tavern at The Cheshire St. Louis, which reopened recently touting a renovation.

To prepare the warm autumnal drink, chef Eric Barbeau steeps a sachet of cloves, allspice and cinnamon sticks in fresh apple cider sweetened with a bit of brown sugar. While the prep method for this fall classic is simple, Fox & Hounds adds a touch of English elegance by serving the cider in individual teapots with an accompanying teacup and scone. Depending on who is cozying up near the big stone fireplace at the tavern – whether families on a post-Forest Park refreshment stop, a group of friends after the Cards’ game or couples on a romantic date – customers can enjoy the amber drink as is, or with a tummy-warming shot of rum.
