Gingerbread. It’s the taste of Christmas. If it’s not in a latte, it’s in your biscuit tin. That sweet, spiced, scent-of-the-season is everywhere at this time of year and I love it. I that know many of you have long-awaited the arrival of those gingerbread lattes in the coffee shops and I’ve already munched my way though a tub of ginger cookies. So today I’m going to show you how to make gingerbread syrup for yourself, so you can make your own spiced coffees and save yourself £s in the process. And the best part about this recipe – it’s perfect for making the bubbliest of all seasonal cocktails: gingerbread prosecco!INGREDIENTS

1 cup soft brown sugar

2 teaspoons ground ginger

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon mixed spice

200g water

  1. Heat the water in a small pan, and stir in the brown sugar.
  2. When the sugar starts to dissolve, tip in the spices and add the teaspoon of vanilla extract.
  3. Bring to the boil and then turn down the temperature and simmer for 5 minutes until all the spices are combined and the syrup begins to thicken.
  4. Pour the syrup into a sterilised bottle and seal.

And there you have it! Gingerbread syrup for all manner of uses; hot chocolates, lattes, cocktail-making, drizzling over cakes, stirring into porridge – can you think of any other uses? Leave me a comment below if so! 


If you’re planning a party over the festive period, I highly recommend trying this gingerbread prosecco cocktail. It really couldn’t be easier: Add a teaspoon of your homemade gingerbread syrup into a champagne flute and top up with fizzy prosecco, such as this delicious bottle of i heart Prosecco from i heart Wines. If the syrup has become too thick to combine with the prosecco, give it a little swirl in the glass with a cocktail stirrer to combine. You’ll get a beautiful golden-coloured cocktail that tastes like Christmas in a glass. It’s great for your New Years Eve party too – and for any other special occasion for that matter!
