High West Quit’n Time Hot
Mug of your choice
2 oz. High West Double Rye!
3 oz. spiced lemonade, hot*
A cinnamon stick or lemon wheel
Add both ingredients to a pre-heated mug or goblet and stir briefly. Garnish with a cinnamon stick or lemon wheel.
Makes about 3 quarts, enough for about 30 cocktails. Can also be a standalone no-ABV beverage for both kids and adults.
5 cups sugar
4 cups water
2 lemons, cut in half
18 to 20 cloves
4 cinnamon sticks
1 vanilla bean
1 whole nutmeg
About 5 cups lemon juice
Add all the ingredients, except the lemon juice, to a saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Reduce the heat to a simmer for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat and strain. Measure the volume of the spiced syrup mixture and add an equal volume of lemon juice, plus one and half times the volume of additional water (i.e. for each cup of syrup, add a cup of lemon juice and a cup and a half of water).
