It’s cold outside. Gray. Drizzly. And if you’re near us in New England, it’s probably snowing.
Need a pick-me-up? Try this bourbon winter warmer – it’s the perfect excuse to stay indoors, by the fire (or your favorite TV show), wrapped up and sipping on this simple cocktail. (Bonus: It also only takes five minutes. Who doesn’t have five minutes?)
Ingredients (makes 2)
4 ounces of Bourbon (pick your preference)
3 whole cloves
3 whole cardamom pods
1 star anise
Mix together and pour into two tumblers. Top with as much or as little hot water as you like. The star anise and spices are bold, giving the drink some pep. If you prefer yours sweeter, add a few drops of honey.
Then settle into a cozy corner and sip. Another six weeks of winter? No problem. You’ve got this.
