One of the highlights of my very first grad school semester was my friend Will’s homemade Krupnik. We finished an accounting exam that no one was looking forward to at all and he pulled out a bottle of sweet, homemade liqueur. We passed it around… and around… and around and, look, I’m sure other things happened, but mostly I remember it being really fun.
Krupnik is a honey-spiced Polish liqueur that’s especially popular in the winter months. I’ve planned to make it every year since Will first introduced it to me, but inevitably it falls off the list in favor of a bit more gift shopping or another Christmas get-together. This time, I’ve planned a Spiced Honey and Citrus cocktail to fill the krupnik shaped hole in my heart in partnership with Tropicana’s #MixedWithTrop campaign. Its sweet and spicy and full of warmth, with a citrus-y bright note that will make you look like one heck of a home bartender!
