RAV4 Ginger & Pear Spice

  • 1 tablespoon ginger spiced simple syrup (recipe to follow)
  • 1/3 cup pear nectar
  • 2 Tbsp ginger ale
  • Garnish: Cinnamon sticks, star anise pods, candied ginger (optional)

Ginger Spiced Simple Syrup Recipe:

  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 cups sliced fresh ginger root, peeled
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 2 whole nutmeg seeds
  • 2 whole star anise pods
  • 1 tsp whole cloves
  • 1 Tbsp whole cardamom seeds

*In a pinch, replace all the spices with two Chai tea bags and the fresh ginger.

Place sugar, water, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, star anise, cloves, and cardamon in a medium-sized saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir and bring to a boil, reduce the heat to medium-low. Simmer the syrup uncovered for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally to thicken and infuse the flavours. Remove from the heat and cool completely. Strain the syrup into a jar or container.

To make the mocktail: Fill a shaker with ice. Add a tablespoon of the ginger spiced simple syrup and 1/3 cup of pear nectar to the shaker. Put the lid securely on the shaker and shake vigorously until the drink is cold. Fill a glass with ice, pour over the shaken mocktail and top with Ginger ale. Stir and garnish with a cinnamon stick and/or a star anise pod, if desired. Enjoy immediately.

Extra simple syrup can be stored sealed in the fridge.

Green Tundra Iced Kombucha

  • 3oz Mint Kombucha
  • 1oz Cedar Simple Syrup **
  • 1 Lime zest and juice
  • 3oz Tonic Soda
  • Cube brown sugar (ideally demerara)

For the syrup, pour the lemon juice into a saucepan, add the cedar jelly, and melt it.

Frost a small glass: lightly wet the rim of the glass with a lime wedge, and then dip in a plate containing a base of brown sugar. The sugar will stick to the edge of the glass with the humidity.

Then pour the kombucha, tonic soda and lemon-cedar syrup into the frosted glass.

Add ice cubes to almost reach the edge of the glass. Finish with the lime zest. You can garnish with a cedar branch if you have one.

** If you cannot find cedar jelly at the delicatessen, pour 100ml of water and 100ml of sugar, and add small, crushed cedar branches. Bring to a boil, set aside in the fridge, letting the cedar infuse overnight. Pass through a fine strainer. The syrup will keep for several weeks in the fridge.
