4 tbsp cherry-syrup (or other red syrup)
1 tbsp finely ground ginger
½ cinnamon stick
juice and zest of 1 organic lime
1 tsp light brown cane sugar
chilled champagne or Tonic-water
Wash cumquats in hot water, cut them in fine rings and remove the stones (if there).Briefly boil up syrup, ginger, cinnamon, lime juice and cane sugar. Place the pot aside, add cumquat slices as well as their juice and allow to cool off.
Before you serve the Christmas Cocktail: remove the cinnamon stick, then pour in eight glasses. Add chilled champagne or Tonic-water.
