Feeling under the weather today so a hot toddy with a wee dram after climbing up to the castle is just what the doctor* ordered #hottoddy *my father used to make me these in our beautiful cut-glass tumblers
If our wine friends can enjoy Glühwein in winter we should have Glühgin!
Aniseed is prominent in @cruxlandgin, @theginboxsa’s June gin, and it also has sweet warm notes from the honeybush, rooibos and almond. This makes it the ideal gin for a hot spicy drink to warm you up.
1 Small bay leaf (optional)
1 Cinnamon quill
1 Star anise
1 Slice of lemon
100 ml Fresh orange juice
80 ml Water
1 to 2 tsp of honey (start off with 1 and test towards the end to see if you want it sweeter)
60 ml Cruxland Gin
Method: Heat all ingredients, aside from the gin, in a small saucepan and gently simmer for 10 minutes. In the meantime warm up your glass/cup by filling it with boiling water. After 10 minutes discard the boiling water from your glass, strain your simmering mixture in to your heated glass and add the gin. Garnish with dehydrated citrus and star anise. -
For fun I decorated my cup with a dandelion. I couldn’t resist after I picked it on my morning walk. It didn’t make it home entirely intact, but I still thought it’s pretty enough.
