Cody Kirkland, beverage magician at Salt Lake City’s The Rose Establishment, created what he refers to as “a lazy autumn afternoon recipe” with spiced maple syrup, SerendipiTea’s Honeybush, Apple Ginger Bitters & Steamed Milk, topped with a generous shaving of Nutmeg.



The recipe is as follows:



Spiced Maple Syrup

10 g cracked black pepper

3 bay leaves

1 cup maple syrup

1 cup water

*Simmer in saucepan for 15 minutes, cool, strain.
