To make the five spice syrup, combine 1 rounded teaspoon of five spice powder with 2c of sugar and 1c of water. Heat on low until the sugar is dissolved. Squeeze through a cheesecloth into a bottle.
From other users
  • Made with Appleton V/X, regular simple, and a few healthy dashes of 5-spice bitters. The rum gets a bit buried. — ☆☆☆☆
