[ Recipe: Simple Sweet & Spicy Juniper Syrup ] ~ from Monterey Bay Herb Co
simple sweet & spice juniper syrup

This syrup is very easy to make but is so flavorful people will think it took a lot of effort. Use this syrup to create your own signature cocktails and mocktails.

1 cup water
3 tablespoons dried juniper berries
3 cardamom whole pods
1 orange, peeled (reserve the flesh for another use)
1 cup sugar

Using a mortar and pestle, lightly crush the juniper berries to break them open. Toss the berries into a medium saucepan. Repeat with the cardamom pods. Cut the orange peel into strips and add to the pan. Add the water and heat over medium heat to just bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce heat and stir in sugar. Simmer the mixture on the lowest heat for 15-20 minutes. Remove from heat, cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight. Strain and refrigerate the reserved syrup. Use within 2 weeks.
