About the recipe
I can't find the words to tell you how good this mock toddy is! It's such a pleasing, warming and uplifting drink, unlike anything you've tasted before.
It's both fruity and spicy… and it just glows! We first prepared this back in winter 2022 and it was a complete sell-out.
little batch Rosy Glow Herb & Spice Mix*
25ml little batch Chai Spiced Plum Syrup
500ml boiling water
A squeeze of fresh orange
Garnish ideas: dried orange wheel and star anise (reserve one of each from the mix)*
* Our Rosy Glow herb and spice mix is based on two servings and contains hibiscus, rosehip, star anise, cloves and dried orange wheels. It's avalable in our Chai Spiced Plum Winter Warmer Kit and our Winter Warmer Large Luxury Gift Box.
Add the Rosy Glow mix to a tea filter or teapot with infuser*
Add the hot water
Leave to infuse for around eight minutes until you have a deep red tea infusion.
Pour into a mug, add the Chai Spiced Plum Syrup and stir.
Garnish with a dried orange wheel and star anise.
* If you don’t have either of these, just use an ordinary teapot or a heat resistant jug along with a sieve/strainer.
You may find you can reuse the same Rosy Glow mix to make another infusion.
