Steep The Liquors

Now it's time to let the flavors you've added infuse into the liquors. Wait at least two weeks and up to a month before drinking.

Mix Into Holiday Cocktails

Use the liquors as party favors, or as the secret ingredient in the signature holiday cocktails printed on each label:

Fall Harvest (shown below)
1 ounce ginger-anise vodka
5 ounces hot apple cider
squeeze of lemon juice
dash of cinnamon

Stir to combine. Garnish with anise pods.

Sizzling Mary
5 ounces tomato juice
3 ounces spicy vodka
dash Worcestershire sauce
squeeze of lime
salt and pepper

Shake with ice. Garnish with a celery spear or pickled okra.

The Cozy Night
1 ounce vanilla-cinnamon bourbon
1 ounce hazelnut liqueur
3 ounces milk

Shake with ice. Garnish with a cinnamon stick.
