Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 allspice berries
  • 1 star anise pod
  • 4 slices fresh ginger
  • 3 ounces bourbon
  • 2 ounces apple cider
  • 1 ounce fresh orange juice
  • 1 ounce fresh lemon juice
  • 3 dashes of orange bitters
  • 1/4 cup red wine
  • Cinnamon sticks, for garnish

Method

Step 1

Make the spiced syrup: Combine the sugar, 1/2 cup water, the allspice, star anise and ginger in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally to dissolve the sugar. Remove from the heat and let cool completely. Strain into a liquid measuring cup.

Step 2

Make the cocktails: Combine the bourbon, apple cider, orange juice, lemon juice, 1 ounce of the spiced syrup (reserve the rest for more cocktails) and the orange bitters in a cocktail shaker. Fill with ice and shake vigorously until chilled, about 30 seconds. Strain into 2 ice-filled rocks glasses and top with the red wine. Garnish with cinnamon sticks.
