This is a tweaked recipe of a tweaked recipe. Infusing usually takes days, so to have it done in hours is a treat! There's a hint of holiday spice, a nice citrus layer and it's great for larger gatherings since the prep work is done ahead and all you have to do is put the components into a shaker and enjoy!
