What I'm making this Christmas

Spiced Orange and Clove Brandy

My preparations for Christmas start today. The first thing I'm making is Spiced Orange and Clove Brandy, from Prepped! by Vanessa Kimbell. You can find Vanessa's recipe here.

I've followed the recipe almost exactly, but have replaced the caster sugar with Vanessa's Orange and clove sugar, again from Prepped!

This took me just a matter of minutes to make, and I plan to use this in my homemade mincemeat and Christmas cake. Yes, my Christmas cake is not made. I always make a last minute one.

I'll be blogging all the recipes I use in the run up to this space!


  1. Excited to see what you make :-)

  2. Thank you so much lovely! Watch this space! Hope you are well x

  3. It's delicious !! ( I should know !)
