Recipe type: Drinks
Serves: 2
Cardamom syrup
  • 1 cup water
  • ¼ cup whole cardamom pods, crushed
  • 1 cup raw honey

Cardamom vodka fizz
  • ½ cup vodka
  • 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons cardamom syrup
  • ½ cup tonic water (with no added sweeteners)
  • ¼ cup small ice cubes
  • 2 cinnamon sticks, for garnish
  • 2 fresh orange slices, for garnish
  • 2 star anise, for garnish
How To Make
  1. To make the syrup, combine water and crushed cardamom pods in a medium skillet over high heat. Bring to a boil before reducing heat to low. Stir in the honey and mix well until dissolved.
  2. Allow the mixture to simmer for the next 15 minutes until thickened. Remove from heat and allow the mixture to cool for at least 10 minutes before straining out the cardamom.
  3. Combine the vodka, orange juice, and cardamom syrup in a cocktail shaker or a jar with a lid. Shake well to mix the flavors together.
  4. Divide the vodka mixture evenly between 2 glasses with ice, and top off the glass with tonic water.
  5. Garnish each glass with an orange slice, a cinnamon stick, and a star anise.
If you don’t own a cocktail shaker or a jar with a lid, simply combine the ingredients into a large jar and stir well until the ingredients are thoroughly mixed.
