Winter's Eve Warmer

Prep Time:

10 minutes

About the recipe

This is the perfect fireside drink for late summer camping when the days start to shorten and there's a chill in the air, for the long winter evenings, or when you're feeling under the weather – and it's just as comforting without the alcohol.

little batch Wild Blackberry Syrup works just as well as Spiced Elderberry. Why not try both and see which you prefer!



  • 25ml little batch Spiced Elderberry Syrup

  • Juice of a quarter to a half of fresh orange

  • Freshly boiled water

  • Garnish ideas: fresh or dried orange wheel, star anise, cloves or a cinnamon stick.

  • A single measure of dark rum or whisky if you’re making an alcoholic hot toddy.



  • Boil the kettle. 

  • Meanwhile add the orange juice and Spiced Elderberry Syrup to a mug.

  • If you're making a hot toddy, add your spirit.

  • Add the hot water.

  • Garnish/add extra spices and leave for a couple of minutes to infuse.

  • Enjoy!
