Happy Hour : Winter Spice Fizz

What a week I have had! I can tell you now, I can't wait to have a cocktail and celebrate the Christmas season! With a HUGE event behind me and lots of work going on with Glimmer & Threads  I am so ready for a break today and to take in the holidays!!! A couple of weeks ago I made some homemade citrus mulling syrup and created a cocktail with it. It is such an easy recipe, its tasty and it makes your home smell delicious! The beautiful Maxeen Kim was there to capture the pictures with yummy gingerbread cookies mixed into the afternoon. Find the recipe below. I hope that you find a little time over the next few days to make yourself a cocktail and toast the holiday season. 
Citrus Mulling Syrup 

250g of granulated sugar
2 oranges halved
6 whole cloves
6 whole allspice
2 cinnamon sticks
1/4 nutmeg grated
fresh ginger sliced

1. Put all of the ingredients in a saucepan with 1 Litre of water and bring slowly to a simmer. 
2. Make sure all ingredients have completely dissolved, allowing it to boil and turn down the heat. 
3. Allow to simmer for latest 20 minutes, longer to keep a delicious smell in your kitchen! 
4. Remove from heat to cool. Once cooled completed put it through a very fine sieve. 
5. Add a tablespoon of syrup, top with champagne and garnish with a sliced apple. 

 I think the mulling syrup also works as a great gift for a host. Bottle some syrup up and add the bottle with a bottle of champagne and tie a little recipe around the bag, voila. 

 Cheers! Merry Christmas! xoxo - Rebecca
