Years ago, there was an Orange Spice flavored, coffee mix in the ‘International Coffee’ line that has been discontinued. I loved it. I miss it. I miss it so much that I came up with a replacement. This is a very easy recipe for a simple syrup. It’s also a wonderful, homemade Christmas gift idea. The syrup is added to a cup of coffee for a natural, subtle, not overly sweet, orange-spiced flavor; which is a perfect addition to the Holiday Dessert Table. It’s also a wonderful little indulgence to make for yourself to enjoy on a cozy, winter afternoon spent reading.
1 cup of granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups of water
The peel of one orange
2 cinnamon sticks
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Combine all of the ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring mixture to a boil.
Reduce heat to simmer and allow to simmer at low for 20 minutes.
Transfer hot syrup to a glass bowl and chill for one hour.
Place 2 tablespoons of the orange-spiced syrup in a coffee cup and warm in microwave for 20 seconds. Add coffee and cream … and a little spray whip cream on top.
Store syrup in the fridge.

If you’ve never tried your hand at a Thai recipe, I encourage you to consider giving this one a go.

This slightly exotic, main entree is most definitely a guest-worthy dish.

The combination of diverse ingredients meld beautifully via the slow cook method, culminating in a surprisingly, delicious dish.
