Ingredients

¼ cups water



2 to 4 Tbsp. Saigon Cinnamon Chips*

1.75 cups bourbon whiskey


Savory Spice ingredients in this recipe

Directions

In a small pot, combine water, Vanilla Bean Sugar, and Crushed Red Pepper Flakes. Simmer over medium heat until sugar has dissolved, about 2 to 3 min. Strain mixture into a sealable jar and add Saigon Cinnamon Chips and bourbon. Seal the jar and gently shake to combine. Let mixture sit in a cool, dark spot at room temperature for 3 to 5 days, depending on how strong you want it to be. Strain the infused bourbon into a serving container. Sip and enjoy!
