I am starting to really enjoy warmed cocktails. During those cold months of fall and winter, nothing beats something to sip on that makes you feel toasty inside. This is one of those drinks that warms you up right away on a cold evening.
I’m usually not a fan of bourbon whiskey, but it tastes incredibly delicious in this drink! When I took my first sip, my face lit up with surprise on how yummy it tasted. I am defiantly going to make a huge batch of this for my next party. This would be great at Thanksgiving or other holiday party.
In my opinion, it tasted perfect warm, but once cooled, it can be served over ice. Drink up and share your thoughts!
