The flavors Bärenjäger, pine, and peach bitters help keep the post-holiday doldrums at bay.

"This cocktail is inspired by a drink that my grandma used to make me when I was getting sick. It was a hot toddy of sorts, sweetened with honey, muddled peaches, cloves, star anise, apples and a touch of brandy. The one I created is a cold version intended to make you smile and cure boredom." - Created by Josue Romero of Odd Birds
