We’ve paired a candy-infused bourbon cocktail with this collection.

 

What You Need:

CH_BigRed

For the Infused Bourbon (Make 24hrs in advance):

One 750-ml bottle bourbon
¾ cup (6 oz.) Red Hots cinnamon candies

For the Cocktail:

2 oz. infused bourbon
2 oz. fresh orange juice, strained
Ice
1 long orange peel strip, for garnish

 

What to Do:

Make the infused bourbon:

In a large jar, combine the bourbon and Red Hots. Let them sit overnight for the bourbon to infuse; it will take on a deep red color. Strain the mixture and discard any remaining Red Hots.

Make the cocktail:

Wrap the orange peel around the inside of a rocks glass then fill it with crushed or pebbled ice. In a mixing glass, combine the infused bourbon, orange juice, and ice. Stir and strain the liquid into the rocks glass. Enjoy.
