How to Make Cherry Stem Infused Simple Syrup
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 tbsp cherry stems specific for making tisanes
Add the sugar, water and cherry stems to a small saucepan over medium heat.
Stir until sugar is dissolved.
Let cool, then strain into a glass jar and seal tightly with a lid.
Simple syrup will keep, refrigerated, for about one month.
Make the cocktail:
In a blender add oat milk, simple syrup, marzipan and 1/3 cup rum to taste
Blend on high until the marzipan is well dissolved and drink is frothy. Serve over ice and garnish with freshly grated nutmeg.
Rum is optional as this does a great drink as a cocktail and kids love it too! May be served hot or cold, remember to froth in the blender at either temperature you chose.
