I used to make this drink for my seven college housemates on late winter nights. Back then I used Fireball (which tastes like Red Hots dissolved in cheap whiskey, if you're not familiar), but now I achieve a much more satisfying warming effect with cinnamon-orange tea. You can get a great loose-leaf blend called Noel at the Tea House on 4th street; Hamey & Sons Cinnamon Orange Sunset works well too.
