Stylish drinks for the festive season…

We are well into  the party season! We love to entertain in our own homes and one of the best ways to create festive fun is to make seriously good (stylish) cocktail for our guests…

We’ve stumbled across these festive recipes on Pinterest to get us all in the Christmas spirit - here’s our favourite from the Charming Detroiter:

Indian Winter : A Cardamon Cocktail

What you will need:

1 egg white
1/2 cup Honey
1/2 oz Honey cardamom simple syrup
1/2 oz Lemon juice

4 Cardamom pods
1 Star anise
1 drops Angostura bitters
1 1/2 oz Vodka
1 drops Angostura bitters
1 1/2 oz Vodka


For the Syrup…

In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine water, honey, and cardamom pods. Heat, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is homogenous. Remove from heat and allow to come to room temperature. Using a fine mesh sieve, strain the simple syrup into an airtight jar. Syrup will keep in the refrigerator for up to 4 weeks

For the Cocktail…

Fill a lowball glass with ice water and set aside. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add vodka, simple syrup, lemon juice, and egg white. Shake vigorously to combine for 20-25 seconds. Empty ice water from lowball glass and strain contents of shaker into the glass. Garnish with bitters and a star anise. Make, Drink, Enjoy, Repeat..
