DD loved this but to me the star anise flavour was too strong and I don't think I liked the vanilla in this either. I used organic vanilla flavour without alcohol instead of the bean and Pom pomegranate juice. I think it would have been better with real unsweetend cranberry juice. I won't make this again. Made for Comfort Cafe - Snow Queens Round 01/10.
