SPICED RYE WHISKEY

A Great Winter Time Spirit: Rye Whiskey with Warming Spices
Mixers | Food & Drink


*this is a repost but thought to remind everyone that this is the time to make it!!!*

This drink is great all winter long, but I especially like it during the Thanksgiving and Christmas season because of the spices. Since it involves infusing, my recommendation is to make it right after Halloween so it is ready for Thanksgiving Aperitifs.

INGREDIENTS & RECIPE


Ingredient:
Start with Whole Spices - Cloves, Cinnamon Sticks, All-Spice & Star of Anise

Step 1:
Measure a woman's palm full of each spice for 2 bottles. Use 3 cinnamon sticks per bottle. Though, I use less Star of Anise because I do not like licorice.





Ingredient:
Coffee (if desired)

Step 2:

Pour shot of Whiskey in Morning Coffee.
To make room for the spices, a shot of whiskey needs to be poured out. I recommend making this in the morning as a shot of whiskey in coffee is a great way to start a Sunday. Otherwise, the whiskey can be shot alone.

LABEL AND ENJOY
Spirits make great gifts for the holidays, but are even better when they include a special home made touch. Make a label to gift to friends.
