2 Cinnamon Sticks
2 Tbsp. Cardamom Seeds

Trappist Monk

Start with a coffee mug and add 3/4 oz. of Coffee Liqueur, 3/4 oz. of Hazelnut Liqueur and 3/4 oz. of Irish Cream. Fill the rest of your mug with hot, black Coffee. Finish by topping with Whipped Cream and serve.


Hot Toddy    

1 1/2 oz. Whiskey
1 oz. Honey
1/3 oz. Lemon Juice
3 oz. Water (Hot)

If you have a microwave, the easiest way to make this drink is to warm the honey and lemon juice for about half a minute and then to add hot water and the whiskey. Otherwise, we recommend that you stir the honey and lemon juice into extremely warm water, allow it to cool slightly, and add the whiskey.


Cinnamon Toast

1.25 oz. Captain Morgan Original Spiced (25 oz. per bottle)
6 oz. hot apple cider
1 tbsp. cinnamon sugar
1 slice(s) orange
Rub rim of a hurricane glass with half an orange and dip into cinnamon sugar to coat.

Add Captain Morgan Original Spiced Rum and hot apple cider.


Mexican Hot Chocolate

1 oz. Stirrings Espresso Coffee Liqueur
0.5 oz. Don Julio
6 oz. Hot Cocoa
6 Whipped Cream
1 pinch(es) Cinnamon

Combine the Stirrings Espresso Coffee Liqueur and the Jose Cuervo Especial Tequila in a hot beverage glass.

Pour hot cocoa over the top.

Stir to combine.

Add whipped cream topping (optional).

Garnish with ground cinnamon or ground chile and a cinnamon stick (optional).


Hot Apple Cider Streudel

1 oz. Vodka
4 to 5 oz. Apple Cider
Ground Cinnamon
Powdered Sugar
1 Apple
Caramel Apple Dipping Sauce

Fill a shaker with ice. Add vodka and apple cider. Add one dash of ground cinnamon.

Rim a coffee mug or other hot beverage glass with powdered sugar. Transfer warm beverage to rimmed glass.

Garnish with a second dash of cinnamon and an apple slice that has been coated with caramel apple dipping sauce.
