- 2 cinnamon sticks

*My recipe is based on this one // here // but I’ve made a few substitutions.
Step 1: Peel and then dice the ginger, split the vanilla pod, and cut the crystalized ginger.
Step 2: Partition everything into one or two large mason jars. Add the nutmeg cloves.
Step 3: Add 1 oz. of golden syrup to each mason jar, or 2 oz. if you’re just using one jar.
Step 4: Add the vodka, seal the mason jars, and then leave them for about 4 days in a cool and dark place.
