I love a good old fashioned, but making a fresh homemade drink on the spot can be time consuming! I created this easy homemade mix to save time and still have a delicious homemade drink that guests will love! This mix is also makes a great gift!

  • Remove fruit and cinnamon stick from mixture using a slotted spoon; stir in bitters.

Cook's Note:

I use old liquor or wine bottles to store the mix in once it's cooled! Can be refrigerated or left at room temperature!

I use usually a little less than 2 tablespoons bitters.
