A holiday-inspired cocktail from Belmond Charleston Place Hotel’s Thoroughbred Club

“I love the hotel during the holiday season—the festive decorations and the train in the lobby create an enchanting atmosphere. This drink draws on the aromas of treats baking in an oven.” —Mouzon Taylor Jr., bartender

1.5 oz. Wild Turkey American Honey infused with vanilla bean and cinnamon, recipe follows
1 oz. Hoodoo Chicory liqueur
