Spiced Honey Syrup

  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary (plus more for serving)
  • 2 cinnamon sticks (or 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon)
  • 1 tablespoon cardamom pods (or 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom)
  • 1 inch fresh ginger (sliced)
  • zest of 1 orange
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Old Fashioned

  • 2 ounces Rye
  • 1 ounce lemon juice
  • 1 ounce orange or clementine juice
  • 1-2 dashes orange bitters
  • 2-4 tablespoons spiced honey syrup


  • To make the spiced honey syrup.
    Bring 1/2 cup water, the honey, rosemary, cinnamon, cardamom, and ginger to a boil over high heat in a medium pot. Boil for 2-3 minutes, then remove from the heat. Stir in the orange zest and vanilla. Let cool. This syrup makes enough for about six drinks.
  • In a cocktail shaker, combine 2-4 tablespoons of honey syrup, Rye, lemon juice, orange juice, and orange bitters. Add ice and shake—strain into a glass. Garnish with an orange slice and rosemary, if desired.
