Equipment

  • Cocktail Shaker (or see notes if you don't have one)
  • Champagne Flutes

Ingredients
 
 

For the Christmas Spice Syrup (Makes About 200ml):

  • 200 g caster sugar
  • 200 ml water
  • 4 black peppercorns
  • 6 cloves
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 2 star anise
  • 1 strip orange zest

For One Cocktail:

  • 30 ml gin
  • 30 ml spiced syrup
  • 10 ml lemon juice
  • 20 ml cranberry juice
  • prosecco to top the glass
  • ice

Instructions
 

Make Spiced Syrup:

  • In a small saucepan, bring sugar, water, peppercorns, cloves, cinnamon stick, star anise, and a thick strip of orange zest to a boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat and gently simmer for 15 minutes, until thickened to a syrupy consistency. Set aside and let the syrup cool completely. Pour through a sieve into a jar and discard the spices. Store in the fridge until you're ready to use it.

Make the Cocktail:

  • Pour the gin, spiced syrup, lemon juice and cranberry juice into a cocktail shaker. Fill with ice cubes and shake until cold. Strain into the champagne flute and top with chilled prosecco.

Notes

If you don’t have a cocktail shaker and can’t justify buying one, here are a few suggestions: 
  • A thermal coffee mug with a lid tightly screwed on
  • A sturdy mason jar 
  • A smoothie maker glass
