So during the advent days I want to share with you some DIY ideas, so you can make little somethings to hand them to your friends and family.
Today we start off with an classic, a something I make since I discovered my love for (overly sweet) coffee and the fact that Starbucks does not use anything else but syrup. So why not give your coffeelovers a nice little syrup, wether it is following the big "trend" Chai spices or you make a nice cinnamon or chocolate one.
Oh, and you should always make a bottle more... for you. Because you are going to be addicted.
250 g sugar
350 ml water
2 bags of Chai tea / another spicy black tea
2 cm ginger
spices: e.g anis, cinnamon, cardamon, vanilla...
2. Cut your ginger into small pieces, the smaller the more flavor you are going to get.
4. Add in your spices.
6. Pour your mixture through a sieve...
7. so all the bigger pieces won't choke your friends. Fill everything in (sterilized) bottles and label it nicely.
And now excuse me, I have to light candles, eat christmas cookies and drink my Chai Latte. Screw you male roommate!
