FEW Straight Rye Whiskey, a (70%rye, 20% corn, 10% malted barley) mash bill, forms the base of the spirit. However, the distiller proofs the barrel-strength rye whiskey down to bottling strength using 8 Immortals tea instead of water. Grown at an altitude of 2000 feet, in the southeastern corner of Guangdong Province, China, the Dancong oolong leaves are a real prize among tea nerds.)

Devon Tarby, 2015
Devon Tarby describes why she loves this drink: “The Bad Santa is one of my all time favorites. It requires an overnight infusion of unsweetened cacao butter, which is a little time consuming, but it’s totally worth it – the end result is like peppermint bark candy in a glass. The nice thing about this drink is that it can be made in larger batches and stored in the freezer, making it a great option for holiday entertaining.”
