Christmas Cocktail

I have found this recipe on juleorangeade on the blog "Himmelske kager", and it look very interesting, so I decide to try it out in connection with the Christmas lunch yesterday.

This Christmas Cocktail does not have any spice flavour at all, but the taste is excellent being a mix of Christmas spices with the freshness of orange juice. And my girl friends found it to be quiet a good cocktail having a perfect Christmas profile without being dominated of the Christmas spices.

Christmas Cocktail: - 4 cocktails

Sugar liquid

  • 1 dl water
  • 1 dl sugar
  • 1 orange - organic (as you use everything of the fruit)
  • 4 cloves
  • 2 star anise
  • 2 cinnamon sticks

Christmas Cocktail:

  • 5 dl orange juice
  • 1 dl vodka
  • ½ dl Cointreau
  • Ice cubes
  1. Slice the orange into thin slices.
  2. Add water, sugar, orange slices and spices into a cooking pot.
  3. Heat the sugar liquid to the boiling point. Let is softly boil for 3-4minutes.
  4. Cool the down the sugar liquid in the refrigerator. In order to get the wonderful flavour of Christmas, I  let the sugar liquid infuse for 12-24 hours
  5. Remove the spices from the sugar liquid.
  6. Use the orange slices for decoration of the cocktail glasses.
  7. Mix the sugar liquid, orange juice, vodka and Cointreau together.
  8. Serves in cocktail glass with plenty of ice cubes and orange slices.
  9. Cheers and merry Christmas :-)
