"I have a cardamom fetish, born of a love for masala tea," says Jackson Cannon about what inspired him to devise this great winter cocktail. He uses two parts green cardamom to one part black for the drink's Cardamom Syrup. "The green gives it an intoxicating aroma; the black gives it backbone and earthy, peppery spice."
