A purl is an old-school English drink classically involving hot ale with or without warming spices and a nice dollop of gin. In this recipe, the ale is replaced with warm sparkling cider. Sound weird? On the contrary, the fizz adds a refreshing essence and works well with the booze. The maple adds a hefty, buttery quality to the mix. You may sip this drink and think it’s laden with citrus, but save for the bitters and garnish, there’s none. If you want something with a little less oomph, opt for nonalcoholic cider.
