Ingredients: 70cl bottle of gin
150g golden caster or demerara sugar
100g root ginger, sliced (no need to peel)
8 whole cloves
3 cinnamon sticks, roughly broken
½ a nutmeg, grated How To Make: Tip the gin into a lidded container and add the sugar, ginger, cloves, cinnamon sticks and nutmeg. Stir well, cover and leave to infuse for 3-4 days, stirring or shaking every day.
Once it reaches your desired spiciness, strain through a muslin-lined sieve and pour into sterilised bottles. Serve as a warming liqueur, or use as the base for a Gingerbread Fizz cocktail, topping it up with chilled Cava or Prosecco.
