Spiced Christmas cup cocktail recipe | Waitrose

A deliciously refreshing drink using fresh blueberries.

  • Christmas


300g essential Waitrose Blueberries
1 Cooks' Ingredients Cinnamon Stick, plus 8 extra to serve
2 star anise
2 tbsp caster sugar
8 x 200ml bottles Fever-Tree Premium Lemon Tonic Bitter Lemon


1. Place the blueberries, spices and sugar with 2 tbsp cold water into a small pan. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer for 5 minutes or until it thickens slightly. Remove from the heat and leave to cool completely with the lid still on the pan.

2. Strain the mixture through a sieve into a jug, pressing the fruit with the back of a spoon to release all the juice. Cover and chill the syrup until required.

3. Pour the syrup between 8 chilled tumblers or high balls filled with ice. Top up with the bitter lemon and serve each glass with a stick of cinnamon as a stirrer.
