Szechuan Cherry Tonic
2 TBSP Chinese Five Spice Powder
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Ginger, powdered
32 oz Trader Joe's 100% Tart Cherry Juice
Combine sugar with 2 cups of filtered water. Bring to a boil for 10 minutes
Add the spices and whisk vigorously to incorporate - boil for another 10 minutes
Strain the syrup. It's best if you get a super fine mesh like a coffee filter. This will take a ton of time.
In a keg, add the cherry juice (careful of the sediment in the bottle), the filtered syrup and water. Shake to combine.
Chill overnight to near freezing. Hit with 30PSI and shake for 10 minutes.
