Ingredients
Holiday Spiced Simple Syrup
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • ½ tsp allspice
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • 7-8 cloves
  • 1 orange slice (cut into a round)
Drink
  • 8 oz. apple cider
  • 1-2 orange slices, cut into triangles
  • 1-2 apple slices, cut into half moons
  • ¼ cup fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 8 oz. sparkling water
  • 2 sprigs of fresh rosemary
Instructions
  1. Start by preparing the spiced syrup. In a small saucepan, whisk together all the ingredients until combined. Bring to a low boil then reduce the heat to simmer for 15-20 minutes until thick and syrup coats the back of a spoon. Take off the heat. It will thicken further as it cools.

  2. Serve drink by pouring 4 oz. apple cider in a glass. Stir in 2-3 tsp of syrup (depending on your sweetness preference). Top with 1-2 orange slices (cut into triangles), 1-2 apple slices (cut into half moons), and 2 tbsp fresh cranberries. Finish with 4 oz. sparkling water. Garnish with a sprig of rosemary. Feel free to change the quantities as needed.
