Nolet's Winter Warmer cocktail.

Oh the weather outside is still freaking frightful, and we don't have the pleasantries of the holidays anymore to keep us warm. Good thing there's a warming, gin cocktail, to make us forget that it's still winter. Made by John McCarthy, bartender at New York City's Mulberry Project, the Winter Warmer is in fact "red hot," thanks to a honey syrup infused with cinnamon sticks, dried chiles, and dried ginger. McCarthy recommends mixing honey with warm water and the ingredients (dried ingredients, rather than fresh chiles and ginger, will last longer), and infuse it for three days.
