Ben Spalding: Hot spiced apple drink
'I drink loads of this at this time of year. I cook with it, too. We make our own by juicing apples, then reducing the mix down and throwing in some winter spices. I love hearty drinks when it's cold. It's also something that's fun to serve in the restaurant – but not as a drink. We load it into a cream gun and charge it with nitrous oxide. It comes out as an intense bubbling liquid which smokes at the table. It's interesting to take something hearty and then turn that on its head.'
