Garnish with fresh cranberries and orange slices.

Spiced Honey Syrup

You can make this ahead of time, it will keep in the fridge for a few days.

Zest from 2 whole oranges and 1 grapefruit (Rinse the fruit first, then using a fine grater, zest as much of you can of the peel, avoid the white pith)

1 tablespoon whole cloves

1 cup honey

1/2 cup water

Put all in a saucepan and simmer for 10 minutes. Let cool and strain.
