When adding to your coffee, it really is personal preference as to how much sweetness you would like. We suggest starting with a little and adding more to adjust to your taste.
However, this syrup can be used in many more recipes than just coffee. We’ve tried it lots of different ways such as in tea, desserts and milkshakes and it works perfectly!
To show you just how versatile this product really is, we have tested these two recipes out below and would love to share them with you.

This recipe is from the Telegraph and is a delicious twist on the traditional martini.
Firstly, you will need to make the Christmas vodka. This is pretty easy to do, it just needs to be made a week in advance. Mix 1 bottle of vodka in a bowl with 4 cloves, 1/2 a cinnamon stick, 1 slice ginger, 1 nutmeg (cracked), 20ml maple syrup and the zest of 1/2 an orange. Seal with cling film and leave at room temp for a week, then use a fine strainer to separate the ingredients from the vodka.

Orange Zest and a Mini Candy Cane to Serve
