Description: The Winter Citrus Spice is a heartwarming cocktail that encapsulates the festive spirit of Christmas. It combines the bright, sunny flavor of fresh orange juice with the warm, comforting notes of cinnamon. A hint of vanilla and a smooth base of bourbon create a sophisticated drink with a touch of sweetness and spice, perfectly suited for a cozy holiday gathering. Ingredients: - 2 oz Bourbon - 2 oz Fresh orange juice - 1/2 oz Vanilla syrup - 1/4 oz Cinnamon syrup - 2 dashes Angostura bitters - Cinnamon stick for garnish - Orange peel for garnish - Ice cubes Glass: Serve in a double old-fashioned glass. Instructions: 1. Fill the double old-fashioned glass with ice cubes to chill. 2. In a cocktail shaker, combine the bourbon, orange juice, vanilla syrup, cinnamon syrup, and Angostura bitters. 3. Fill the shaker with ice and shake vigorously for about 15 seconds. 4. Discard the ice from the old-fashioned glass and strain the contents of the shaker into the glass. 5. Express the orange peel over the drink by gently squeezing it skin-side down to release the oils, then drop it into the glass. 6. Garnish with a cinnamon stick. 7. Serve immediately and enjoy the warm, citrusy notes of the Winter Citrus Spice. For an extra festive touch, you can rim the glass with cinnamon sugar before preparing the drink—simply mix equal parts sugar and cinnamon on a plate, wet the rim of the glass with an orange wedge, and dip it into the mixture.
