Bourbon has a good smoky flavor that comes from the charred oak barrels that it is aged in. The hot, sticky Kentucky air speeds up the aging process giving it a smooth and mellow taste. In this hot-toddy recipe the star anise, cinnamon and cloves accentuate the taste of the bourbon. The orange and honey provide the classic accompanying flavors. Mix and pour into your favorite mug. Stir with a cinnamon stick and enjoy!
