Author Notes: Note: I love making this drink in a Mason jar for more than one reason. Yes, it is Southern, but it also has measurements on the side of the jar so I don’t have to dirty any measuring cups or jiggers whenever I want to make this lovely autumnal beverage! Also, I usually avoid adding ice to my coffee because it waters down the flavor (I adore strong coffee), but this is just my personal preference! Add ice if you like! P.S. if you are wondering, this libation is like devouring a gingerbread man in liquid form. - amber wilson | for the love of the south
