SYRUP INGREDIENT LIST [yields about 5 servings]
1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1/2 Teaspoon Nutmeg
200ml Unsweetened Cranberry Juice
50g Chopped Turkish Figs
100g Orange Marmalade
50ml Dark Maple Syrup
Streetlevel Instant Craft Coffee
Combine all the syrup ingredients in a medium pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer on low for 10 minutes.
Strain the syrup into a glass container through a small mesh strainer and place it to the side to cool.
Each drink will need half a packet of Instant Craft Coffee: Streetlevel. Pour the full contents of the packet into a mixing glass, adding 2 ounces of water then gently stirring to dissolve the coffee.
Fill a Collins glass with ice and add 1 ounce of the dissolved coffee.
If going the alcoholic route, skip to step six. Fill the glass about two-thirds of the way with sparkling water then top off with 2 ounces of Jewel Syrup. Continue on to step seven.
If you’re here for the sauce, keep adding to your dissolved coffee and ice base with 2 ounces of Jewel Syrup, 1 ounce Chambord and 2 ounces Bourbon. Gently stir, then strain into a rocks glass over a large ice cube or sphere.
Garnish with a fresh sage leaf.
Our Golden Jewel holiday drink recipe is best served as an after-dinner coffee cocktail.
