A Toast To Turning - Winter Solstice

I like to think of it more as a curve than a corner - However which way you view or feel it, the cycle continues, the magical, wonderful cycle that we have no control over.

We are moving once again into the light, we have turned the curve - A time for ritual, gathering and celebration.

Dust yourselves down, celebrate with me and fix yourselves a 'Turn'.

'The Turn'

  • 35ml Spiced Rum (I use homemade zesty/spiced rum) but any will do
  • 10ml Tonic Syrup
  • 20 ml Fresh Clementine Juice
  • Cinnamon 
  • Ice 

Moisten the rim your glass with a little of the clementine juice, sprinkle the cinnamon on to a plate and dip the rim of your glass into the cinnamon  - Leave to one side.

Place all other ingredients into a Cocktail Shaker / Shake and strain into your rimmed glass. Warming, fruity with a hint of spice and bitterness - Just what you need to help you 'turn' into a new cycle.
