Notice: The consumption of raw or undercooked eggs may increase your risk of food borne illness.
SPICED HONEY SYRUP DIRECTIONS
Add all ingredients to a medium saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until warm and fragrant. (Avoid overcooking, as the syrup should not reduce and thicken.) Remove from heat; strain and discard solids. The syrup can be refrigerated for up to two weeks. However, it should be gently rewarmed to create the cocktail.
Add all ingredients except cinnamon to a cocktail tin and shake until you feel the mixture foaming.
Add ice to the tin and shake hard for 10-15 seconds.
Double-strain into a chilled cocktail glass, sprinkle with cinnamon, and serve.
