The Woodchipper

If the big turkey dinner didn’t put you to sleep, this just might.

Brew a strong cup of cherry and cinnamon tea (I used Twinings’ Herbal Revive). If you can’t find a pre-made tea like that, just use a good cherry-based tea and boil the tea with one or two sticks of cinnamon.

In a large mug, combine about 8 oz of hot cherry-cinnamon tea, 1 generous oz Maker’s Mark bourbon, and about 1/2 oz orange & cognac liqueur like Grand Marnier (I used La Belle Orange), then mix in a good dash of basil simple syrup. Serve hot and enjoy while relaxing on a comfortable couch or your favorite reading/lounging chair.
