- 2 oz. High West Double Rye!
- 3 oz. spiced lemonade, hot*
- cinnamon stick or lemon wheel
Add both ingredients to a pre-heated mug or goblet and stir briefly. Garnish with a cinnamon stick or lemon wheel.
- 5 cups sugar
- 4 cups water
- 2 lemons, cut in half
- 18 to 20 cloves
- 4 cinnamon sticks
- 1 vanilla bean
- 1 whole nutmeg
- about 5 cups lemon juice
Add all the ingredients except the lemon juice to a saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat, stirring frequently. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat and strain. Measure the volume of the spiced syrup mixture and add an equal volume of lemon juice, plus one and half times the volume of additional water (i.e. for each cup of syrup, add a cup of lemon juice and a cup and a half of water).
