  • This drink can be kept warm on the stovetop, alternatively you can transfer it to your slow cooker to keep it warm if you are doubling the recipe.
  • Take the cocktail off of the heat when you add in the whiskey. If the drink continues to heat, the alcohol will evaporate.
  • This recipe contains a double shot of whiskey. You can half it if you prefer a less strong drink.
