- 50ml fresh apple juice
- 12.5ml vanilla syrup
- 4 drops Ms. Better’s Chocolate Bitters (optional)
- 1/2 cinnamon stick
- 1 whole star anise, to garnish
Add gin, apple juice, vanilla syrup, bitters and 1/2 a cinnamon stick to a cocktail shaker, add plenty of ice and shake vigorously until chilled. Double strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with the star anise.
Note: This cocktail can be served hot or cold. For the hot version, simply treat as you would mulled wine, and gently warm on the hob. Cloudy apple juice from a carton is a good substitute if you don’t have a bountiful supply of apples to hand. If you want to add a spicy cocoa note to the cocktail, we recommend sourcing some chocolate bitters.
