To me nothing is more soothing than a hot cup of herbal tea in the winter. Add some Bourbon and you got yourself a mug of bliss. This Sweet & Spicy tea is full of seasonal flavors, almost like drinking a liquid version of a fireball candy. Sweetened with apple juice, it makes a great base for a hot toddy! —GentrifriedSouth

I made this last night because I love Good Earth's Sweet & Spicy Herbal Tea. I don't care much for bourbon or whiskey, but substituted "Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey", and it was amazing! I'm adding this to my regular holiday traditions.
