Aleberry: Stay Fit As A Fiddle With A Glass Of This Hearty Drink

February is the shortest month of the year, but the persistent chilly weather is already making it seem like a long wait before it gets warmer. Thus to beat the cold, a cup of hot drink seems perfect. We suggest you indulge in the hearty goodness of aleberry. One of the world’s oldest drinks, aleberry is also quite popular. 

It is prepared by boiling ale with a hint of spices, sugar and bread sops. For the unversed, sop is a piece of bread or toast that is drenched in liquid and then eaten.  In the mediaeval period, soups were quite common as they were generally served with soups, broth or wine. Due to this, it is generally believed that this flavourful drink may have been invented in ancient times.  As the name suggests, this drink is prepared with ale which is a type of beer brewed using a warm fermentation which results in a sweet and fruity taste. Similarly, aleberry is packed with sweet and spicy flavours. It is considered the ideal home remedy for cold and cough during the winter season.  

Make This Flavourful Drink At Home:

As mentioned above, aleberry is prepared with three key ingredients that are ale, sugar and bread pieces. First, you need to take a saucepan and add ale into it. Boil ale along with cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and bread pieces. You can sweeten the drink with a dash of sugar. Once boiled, strain the mixture into a glass and garnish it with extra cinnamon. By following this procedure, your drink will be ready in less than 10 minutes. If you don’t have ale at home, you can swap it with any other beer.
