Make this easy spiced syrup for a warming autumnal g&t!

Summer has met it’s rather soggy demise, and along with the fall of the leaves comes a sudden drop in temperature that has us reaching for our knitwear and clutching a steaming brew. Enter the autumn spice syrup: a spice infused version of your normal simple syrup that’s oh so easy to make, and adds a wonderful warmth to your drink.

Try it in a gin and tonic, substitute it in your favourite cocktail recipe (we love it in an Orange Russian) or even add it to your morning coffee!
