Mulled Spice Syrup Recipe
This review is based strictly on my opinion. Others may have a different opinion or experience with the product listed above. I was provided the sample free of charge by the company or PR agency and I have given my honest opinion. No other type of compensation was received for this review.
One of my favorite things about the holidays are the scents…I love the smell of cinnamon, cookies baking in the oven, fresh Christmas trees…so when I found a family recipe for mulled spice syrup, I wanted to give it a try just to have the smell wafting through my house! I was not disappointed, it smelled heavenly. I am super excited to bottle some up and give it as gifts with some apple cider or even bottles of wine. (And I think I may make some marshmallows with it) I was prompted to look for old family recipes when Peapod reached out to me. Peapod is a fabulous grocery delivery service. I know I can use all the extra help I can get any time of the year, but especially during the holidays! You can even order groceries from their app on your phone…hello car circle line!
I was able to order all of the ingredients from my Peapod app for just under $35…but I may have over ordered. I seriously grocery shopped in my bed, in my pj’s, it was glorious! Sign up for Peapod and get $15 off of your first order too!
Once I had my supplies, I got to work. I tweaked the recipe a little to make it more my own.
