Make Gingerbread Syrup!
Happy Winter, boss babe! It’s really a state of mind when you live in Florida, so we have to up our games when it comes to our decor, food, & enjoying this bit of cold weather. So we decided the perfect way to get into the holiday spirit (in addition to singing loud for all to hear, of course), would be homemade Gingerbread Syrup! This is something tasty that can be added to morning coffee or an evening cocktail. Win-win!
We collaborated with Rollin’ Oats, a local organic grocery store with Tampa & St. Pete locations on a recipe this month. You’ve probably seen our member event photos that feature lots of yummy treats (all of which can be found at Rollin’ Oats!). Rollin' Oats has an amazing selection of healthy, organic groceries and a killer wine selection. Huge thanks to Rollin’ Oats for helping to make it possible to create this week’s holiday post. Also, shout out to Nourish and Nestle and Erin’s Food Files— we took some inspo from their recipes.
Enjoy this amazing holiday season & have a Merry Christmas, a happy Hanukkah, and a wonderful Kwanzaa. And most of all, stay boss! xx
-Gina & Sarah
1 tbsp whole cloves
1 tbsp whole black pepper
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 tbsp allspice
1 tbsp vanilla extract
2 cinnamon sticks
1 cup sugar
1 tsp ground ginger
2 tbsp molasses
Step 1. Grind the cloves and black pepper by hand in a mortar & pestle for approximately one minute.
Step 2. Heat a medium saucepan on medium to high. Combine these mixed ingredients, the other dry ingredients, and the molasses in a bowl. Mix throughly and then add to the saucepan. Allow the mixture to come to a boil and continue to stir.
Step 3. Allow the mixture to cool for 7 to 10 minutes before adding to a vessel with a lid. Brew a pot of your favorite coffee and add Gingerbread Syrup to taste. Garnish with a cinnamon stick. Enjoy!
Note: Store your Gingerbread Syrup in the fridge. This recipe will make approximately 2/3 of a cup, but one spoonful of syrup goes a long way, so you have plenty of tasty cuppas ahead of you, boss babe.
