Spiced-up Shiraz Shots

Shiraz is naturally spicy, but in this version, we have amped up the spice to celebrate the traditional flavours of Easter. Add some cinnamon, star anise, orange zest and few other playful ingredients, and you will have a short, spicy version of your favourite red wine to add another dimension to your entertainment.

1 bottle (750 ml) Leopard’s Leap Shiraz

60 ml sugar

1 cinnamon stick

1 star anise

Zest of 1 orange

45 ml crème de cassis

125 ml cream, lightly whipped

125 ml fresh mixed berries


  1. Combine the Leopard’s Leap Shiraz, sugar, cinnamon sticks, star anise and orange zest in a saucepan over medium high heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes or until the mixture is reduced to 500
