    • Christmas

    Serves: 1


    4 juniper berries, lightly crushed
    1 clove
    10 coriander seeds
    ¼ stick of cinnamon
    60g simple syrup (see Heston’s tip)
    20g clear honey
    ¼ tsp vanilla paste
    ¼ tsp loose Earl Grey tea leaves
    Pinch saffron

    15g reserved spiced honey syrup
    30g Heston from Waitrose Citrus Sherbet Lazy Gin
    60g fresh pineapple juice
    15g Cointreau
    3 maraschino cherries
    15g fresh lime juice
    3 dashes Angostura bitters

    Saffron, to decorate



    1. Toast the juniper berries, clove, coriander seeds and cinnamon in a hot, dry saucepan until fragrant.

    2. Add the syrup, honey, vanilla paste, tea leaves and saffron, and bring to the boil. Once bubbling, remove the pan from the heat and allow the mixture to cool and infuse overnight.

    Heston’s tipTo make a simple syrup combine equal quantities of caster sugar and water in a saucepan, and stir over a low heat until the sugar has dissolved completely. Bring to the boil without stirring, then remove from the heat and leave to cool before using.
