Spicy Cherry Cordial

Active: 30 mins, Total: 1 hr, Yield: 4 cups

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups Scotch Bonnet Cherry Jelly

  • 2 cups water

  • 1 ½ teaspoons cardamom pods, smashed

  • 1 ½ teaspoons grated orange zest, plus 1/2 cup fresh juice (from 1 orange), divided

  • 2 cinnamon sticks

  • 1 (2-inch) piece of fresh ginger, peeled and sliced

Directions

  1. Stir together Scotch Bonnet Cherry Jelly, water, cardamom pods, orange zest, cinnamon sticks, and ginger in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil over medium-high, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat.

  2. Set a fine-mesh strainer over a large heatproof bowl. Pour the cherry mixture through the strainer into a bowl. Discard solids. Stir orange juice into strained Scotch Bonnet Cherry Jelly mixture. Let stand at room temperature, uncovered, until cooled to room temperature, about 30 minutes. To enjoy, pour a ¼-cup serving over an ice-filled cocktail glass and top up with tonic water, or add a splash to a glass of chilled sparkling white wine.

Tips: Cherry cordial may be stored in resealable glass jars in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
