A festive cocktail for holiday celebrations like Christmas, New Years, or Valentine's Day. Leave out the alcohol to make a special treat for a Mother's Day brunch or baby shower.

Directions

For Chai Simple Syrup: Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, whisking to dissolve sugar and honey. Reduce heat and simmer 15 min. Strain and cool completely before use. For stronger syrup, leave the Chai Spices in for up to 2 weeks before use. Store sealed in the refrigerator.

For one Cranberry Fizz cocktail: Squeeze the orange slice into a cocktail glass for juice; place what remains of the slice in the bottom of the glass with the simple syrup and muddle with a wooden spoon. Add remaining ingredients and stir. Top with a few ice cubes if desired. Garnish with cranberries if using.
