It's Claire here, and today I want to share with you a little recipe for something I make a lot during winter - a spiced syrup!
There's something about the combination of spices such as cinnamon and cloves that are just so comforting to me. The smell while making this syrup fills the house with such a calming aroma, and as it keeps really well in the fridge you can use it anytime you need a little something special.
The recipe below is how I like to make my spiced syrup, but the beauty of this recipe is you can adjust it to your own tastes. If you don't like one of the spices I list below, just leave it out. If I don't include something you love, throw it in!

It's so simple! Here are some of the things I use my spiced simple syrup for:
