Author Notes: 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
