You will need...

For the Winter Tea Syrup


1 tablespoon of H. R. Higgins Winter Tea

1 cup of water

3/4 cup of unrefined sugar

1 cinnamon stick


Add alcohol depending on which cocktail you choose

Method...

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

Once the water is boiling, add 1 tablespoon of Winter 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.........

Festive Bellini 

Add a Higgins twist to this classic cocktail by substituting the fruit juice for our Winter Tea Syrup.

Take a champagne flute and add a splash of syrup to the glass. Top up with your favourite sparkling wine, champagne or prosecco and enjoy. A wonderfully simple festive Bellini.

Winter Cocktail

Our Winter cocktail is incredibly simple to make and deliciously moreish. Make for yourself or as a punch.

Take one part of the Winter Tea Syrup, two parts vodka and three parts cream soda and add to a jug. Stir together well and serve over ice. Garnish with star anise and orange for that extra festive flavour and enjoy!

Simple Tiramisu Recipe

Tiramisu is a coffee-flavoured Italian dessert and a favourite of ours at H. R. Higgins.

The literal meaning of Tiramisu in Italian is “pick me up” or “cheer me up”. As the name suggests, this is an iconic Italian dessert that is served at the end of the meal.
