That One Drunk Uncle

We all have one. C'mon, admit it. The face talker...with bad breath? The one that likes to hug the ladies crotch-first. Yeah, him.

Family time can be stressful, but we've whipped up a boozy little number that might just do the trick. Made with JP Wiser's Spiced Rye Whisky, this one turns up the winter spice. Rye naturally has a good touch of spice already, but what these guys have done is also add a hint of vanilla, which makes it quite tasty and very mixable. If you were at our November 3st of the Month, you likely had a shot (or four).

We add even more spice with a little cinnamon syrup (get the recipe here) and perhaps our favorite sweet vermouth of all time, Camparo Antica. This stuff is so good you can sip it neat. Trust us.
