Aries Spiced Syrup
A spiced, comforting syrup designed to add some Aries passion, invigoration, and motivation to your cocktails for the Aries Moon!
- 2-3 medium-large ginger coins/slices
- 7 pieces cloves
- 1-2 threads saffron
- 1/2 cup hot water
- 1/2 cup sugar
(For better flavor infusion, you can heat this syrup over the stove top! I tend to do things on the fly, so I steeped the ingredients, which also made the syrup less intense for those who may want more for comforting elements and less of the intensity). In a mug, place ginger, clove, and saffron. Pour hot water over ingredients and allow it to steep for five minutes. Then add in sugar and stir. If you can, once cool let the syrup infuse in your refrigerator for a few hours to allow for better flavor integration. But do what you can! Strain before use. Once solid are removed, the syrup can last at least 2-3 weeks. Adjust recipe ratios for less yield.
