Christmas Spiced Bourbon

Spiced Bourbon

Nothing says Christmas like cinnamon and clementines…oh and booze! Lately, I have taken to drinking an Old-Fashioned cocktail or two and I decided to combine Christmas spices with Bourbon for an extra special festive drink. This one needs a week or two to infuse the spices into the alcohol so get it going now and it will be ready for a Christmas Day tipple!

1 bottle Jim Beam (or any other Bourbon)
1 cinnamon stick
1 star anise
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cardamom pods
zest of a clementine

Spiced Bourbon

1. Mix the bourbon with all the spices and zest in a kilner jar.
