Whip up some witchy brew for your Halloween party with this better-for-you-than-soda clementine syrup.
2 tbsp clementine zest
2 cups clementine juice
1/2 cup sugar
2 tbsp honey
orange gel food colouring, optional
Combine clementine zest with clementine juice, sugar and honey in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium.
Gently boil, stirring occasionally, until mixture turns syrupy, 25 to 30 min. Remove from heat. Cool, then strain.
Stir in orange gel food colouring until desired colour, if using. To serve, pour syrup into a glass pitcher or bottle with ice, then add soda water to taste.
