Spice Up Your Holiday with Wild Turkey!

Wild Turkey Spiced makes for the ultimate holiday cocktail. For breakfast, mix it with your eggnog and you have yourself the perfect morning cocktail! However, if you’re not into eggnog…or drinking in the morning, then mix it up with some Crown Maple Syrup, and you have yourself a wonderful after dinner drink!

Wild Turkey Spiced is a great buy for your buck. At around $22.99 per bottle, you will enjoy this Bourbon straight, on the rocks, or mixed in with these wonderful cocktails I am about to show you! This spirit is bright with aromas of clove, cinnamon, ginger, some slight cherry, and of course vanilla. I like mine on the rocks, but most people I know love the cocktails, so here are two fun ones with suggested pairings you will want to make for your holiday festivities!
