  • 3 oz. spiced lemonade, hot*
  • cinnamon stick or lemon wheel

Add both ingredients to a pre-heated mug or goblet and stir briefly. Garnish with a cinnamon stick or lemon wheel.

  • 4 cups water
  • 2 lemons, cut in half
  • 18 to 20 cloves
  • 4 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 1 whole nutmeg
  • about 5 cups lemon juice

Preparation

Add all the ingredients except the lemon juice to a saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat, stirring frequently. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat and strain. Measure the volume of the spiced syrup mixture and add an equal volume of lemon juice, plus one and half times the volume of additional water (i.e. for each cup of syrup, add a cup of lemon juice and a cup and a half of water).

Classic Cocktail: the Sazerac

Often referred to as the oldest American cocktail, the Sazerac dates back to the pre-Civil War era. It has seen its share of changes, including the substitution of anise-flavored spirits when absinthe was banned in the US in 1912. Because of that, you may see some variation in recipes, but the basics remain.
