With just a month until Christmas we had a craving for some traditional festive spices here at Grumpy HQ… but of course with a caffeinated kick! So that led us to experiment with our Cascara to create a festive seasonal drink to warm your hooves.

What you will need:

  • 30g Cascara
  • 1litre of boiling water
  • Half an orange
  • 2 star anise
  • 16 whole cloves
  • 1 cinnamon stick


  1. Add your 30g cascara into a Chemex (or jug) add 1 litre of boiling water
  2. Cut two wedges of orange and pierce the whole cloves into the orange skin, around 8 in each should do then add to the cascara
  3. Squeeze the remaining orange and add the juice
  4. Finally add in the 2 star anise and cinnamon stick
  5. Allow to brew for 4 minutes stirring regularly
  6. After the 4 minutes stir vigorously for 30 seconds
  7. Filter and serve whilst hot

This festive brew will have noses twitching in no time with the rich spiciness scent and a taste which won’t disappoint.
