Ingredients

Directions

Method: Combine all 3 teas along with cut up orange and add 12 oz. of hot water. Let the tea and orange brew/infuse for half an hour. Meanwhile combine the apple cider, lemon, amaro, and cinnamon syrup and set aside. When the tea has finished brewing strain out the orange and tea leaves, and combine with the cider and cinnamon mixture. To serve warm heat all ingredients over low heat on the stove until desired temperature has been reached, add the NOLET'S Silver Gin, pour into serving vessels, and garnish with fresh grated nutmeg.

Cinnamon Syrup can be made by boiling 2 Cups of Water with 5-6 cinnamon sticks over medium heat for 10 minutes and then by adding 1 1/2 cups of sugar and stirring until dissolved.

Cocktail Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
