Welcome to the party Winter Warmer

Happy 1st birthday Fiesta Friday! I received this invite to the Fiesta Friday block party, a two week blogger party hosted by Angie at The Novice Gardener. I’m delighted to be attending….


I’m bringing this delicious winter warmer to welcome guests as they arrive at the party. It’s fruity, spicey and can be made with or without alcohol.


I made the cocktail in one of my Christmas presents, a beautiful cast iron milk pan.


I gathered together some star anaise, cloves and cinnamon.


I popped them in the pot with some apple juice.


I brought the juice to the boil slowly to infuse the juice.


Finally, I popped in a shot of the honey vodka that I brought home from India.


Other cocktails that I’ve brought to previous Fiesta Friday partys include
Elderflower Fizz


And a Sparkly Cosmo


I’m bringing a tray of ‘welcome to the party’ winter warmers to the party… Happy Fiesta Friday!
