The Southern Cinnamon Tea (pictured middle).

This cocktail (pictured middle) gets the moniker "Southern" based on the addition of Maker's Mark Bourbon. The whiskey barrel-aged bitters used does not add bitterness but rather brings out the cinnamon-spiced character of the tea. Click here to find more "tea-tails" for winter.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2  Ounce  Maker's Mark
  • 3/4  Ounces  simple syrup
  • Dashes Fee Bros. Whiskey Barrel-Aged Bitters
  • 9  Ounces  cinnamon spice tea (hot)

Directions
