Start by making the spiced syrup. Put all of the ingredients into a saucepan with 100ml water. Gently bring to the boil, then turn the heat off and allow to cool completely. Once cold, pour the mixture through a sieve into a jug and chill until needed. Will keep in the fridge for up to 1 week.
Heat grill to high then roll the marzipan in to 4 balls and place on a baking sheet and grill for 2-3 mins or just until the very top of the marzipan is toasted. Leave to cool then when cold enough to handle thread them on the cocktail stick
Fill 4 tumblers with ice then pour the brandy, Amaretto, lemon and orange juice, Madeira and 50ml of the syrup into a cocktail shaker with a large handful of ice. Shake well until the out side of the shaker feels icy cold. Strain into the tumblers and add the marzipan garnish. Serve immediately.
