Handful of cracked cranberries
Zest from 1 lime
1 tablespoon whole cloves
2 rolls cinnamon bark
1/2 nut of fresh nutmeg, grated
Pinch of ground allspice
3 to 4 star anise
Honey, agave nectar, or maple syrup
2 ounces Purity Vodka
For a hot drink, create a tea with all the ingredients, sweeten with honey, agave nectar, or maple syrup to taste. Stir 2 ounces vodka with 2 ounces of tea in a mug. For an entertaining touch, garnish with a clove and allspice-laden cinnamon stick and holly shaped lime zest. To create the holly leaves, remove zest with a vegetable peeler and cut out the shape using a cookie cutter.
Alternatively, for a cold mix, just drop all ingredients into a 32-ounce bottle of distilled water. Agitate regularly over the course of 12 hours and strain the solids. Use as a mixer or create ice cubes with the water.
