Sugar + Spice COCKTAIL plus AmEx Gift Card GIVEAWAY

Just in time for New Year's (and the colder weather that follows), I've concocted this sweet and spicy drink with a wintery kick. Inspired by my friends at Sierra Mist Natural (did you see the two Sierra Mist holiday cocktails featured earlier this month?) this "Sugar and Spice Cocktail" has the bite of bourbon, a spicy dash of bitters, and Sierra Mist's 100%-natural-no-artificial-ingredients bubbles.

The recipe is below, along with a chance to win a nice little mixology set plus an AmEx gift card!

Sugar + Spice Cocktail

You will need:
1 part bourbon
1 part Sierra Mist Natural
3 drops Angostura bitters (or to taste)

Directions:
Gently stir all ingredients in a rocks glass, either neat or over one large ice cube. Garnish with a cinnamon stick.


But of course, cocktails do not make themselves. You need the tools of the trade, such as those found in a Sierra Mist Natural gift pack: a shaker, garnishing sugars, 4 cocktail glasses, and a $50 American Express gift card to buy the bourbon, bitters, and anything else that strikes your fancy. Want to win? Here's how to enter..
