This winter has been relatively mild in Seattle, nonetheless, I always love a good warm drink. Warm drink with alcohol, even better! I recently discovered the bourbon furnace and it’s become my 2012 winter cocktail. You could dress it up with cloves and cinnamon, but I prefer the simplicity of lemon. When it comes to bourbon, most people think of Maker’s Mark. While I do like Maker’s Mark, I’ve become a big a fan of Woodford Reserve Craft Bourbon. Yum.
What is your favorite winter cocktail?
