Mrs. Pea’s family in Florida sent us a beautiful citrus gift basket that contained orange marmalade which reminded me that I had seen it used as a sweetener in cocktails, and thought it would make a great addition to a twist on one of our favorite cocktails made with whiskey and ginger liqueur. The flavors of this cocktail are somewhat of a sampling of different winter and holiday smells and tastes, but work so well together that when combined, they form a sweet and spicy cocktail that is sure to remind you of a delicious holiday dessert.
