1pt Nutcracker Sour

Ingredient Cocktail (1) Batch (6+)
1pt Mulled Red Infused Bourbon 2 oz 375ml*
Fresh Lemon Juice 1 oz 6 oz
Simple Syrup 1 oz 6 oz
Red Wine 1 oz 6 oz

* 375ml is half of a standard 750ml bottle of spirits

Infuse 375ml of bourbon with one packet of 1pt Mulled Red Blend for 2-3 hours, strain and reserve liquid for cocktail. Infused spirits do not need to be refrigerated and can be used as normal. Combine infused bourbon, lemon juice, and simple syrup in a shaker with ice. Strain pour into rocks glass over ice, reserving about ¼ of the glass. If batching, stir ingredients in a pitcher instead of using a shaker, chilling with ice as desired. Pour red wine slowly over the back of a spoon to create this cocktail's signature color separation. Garnish with rosemary sprig.

For a no-alcohol alternative (mocktail): not recommended given this recipe relies heavily on more than one alcohol
