You will need...

For the Winter Tea Syrup

1 tablespoon of H. R. Higgins Christmas Blend Tea

1 cup of water

3/4 cup of unrefined sugar

1 cinnamon stick

Add alcohol depending on which cocktail you choose


Add 1 cup of cold water to a small saucepan and bring to the boil.

Once the water is boiling, add 1 tablespoon of Christmas Blend Tea to the saucepan and simmer for 3 and a half minutes.

Remove the pan from the heat and strain the loose tea. We recommend passing the solution through a strainer or sieve. Return the liquid to the pan and place back on to the heat.

Next, add a cinnamon stick to the pan before slowly adding the sugar. Make sure to continue stirring the solution as you add the sugar.

Continue to stir the mixture, allowing it to simmer until it has reduced to between half to one third of the volume. You should be left with a very sweet syrup with tone of winter spices.

Discard the cinnamon stick and place the syrup in a clean, sterile jar. 

The syrup can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 months.

Now you have the syrup, we can move on to the cocktails.........

Espresso Chocolate Pots

I love entertaining I have 4 children lots of friends so I like my house to be busy full of people at any opportunity!  The key for me at a supper party is to be prepped I don’t want to be slaving over the stove whilst all my guests are having fun so slow cooked dinners, and having a pre-prepped dessert is super easy these chocolate pots have been in my recipe book for over 20 years from Jamie Oliver’s second cook book!
