Winter warmer

This goes with my Omega juicer review, which I drafted as a post a few days ago and would have held onto a little longer except that I wanted to post this recipe and the two seemed to go hand-in-hand.

This afternoon I came in and did this:

ginger-root green-plus-signmcintoshApplegreen-plus-sign

peet'smuggreen-plus-signTea-Kettle

green-plus-sign honeycinnamon

Juiced a half inch of ginger with half an apple (local from my CSA), poured it into my Peet’s Coffee & Tea mug (a gift from my aunt the last time I was in Berkeley), added hot water & stirred in some local cinnamon honey made by Bees Universe (the honey was local, they obviously sourced the cinnamon from elsewhere), topped with a think slice of apple.

The second cup had bourbon added to it.

woodford reserve Kentucky bourbon

The bourbon makes it special.
