Sometimes you just need something that will warm your soul. This is the drink for that occasion.
When I was a kid I used to sneak drinks of my parents liquor (shhh don’t tell on me.) My favorite part was the way it made my belly warm. I distinctly remember that feeling and how much I loved it.
This drink does the same thing but this time I’m actually legal to drink. I used my favorite cinnamon tea,Harney & Sons Hot Cinnamon Spice. If you can’t find it in your local store I would recommend buying it online. It is seriously the best cinnamon tea you will ever have.
Also, since it’s the boozy days of Christmas I had to add a little booze. I added a little splash of bourbon. You should do the same.
