Cure Your Cough

Evan Christy, barman at Prohibition in Charleston, South Carolina, and the winner of this year’s George Dickel Iron Bartender Competition, created a festive, warm drink to bundle up with in the winter months.

While this is great around a campfire or a fireplace, you can double it, triple it or more and add it to a crock pot for a warm punch. The spiciness of the rye mixes with the sweet and toasty cider and is rounded out by the aromatic bitters, which has notes of clove, anise, nutmeg, and fennel.

In short, all of that melding means this tastes really good.
