3 2-3 inch nobs of ginger, sliced (no need to peel, but make sure you trim off any old, dried out, or decaying parts)
2 cinnamon sticks
10 cups water
½ cup honey
Combine all but the spirits in a slow cooker set on high for 2 hours.
Stir and ladle into a wide teacup over 1.5 ounces of your preferred base spirit (bourbon, aged rum, scotch, or cognac are all excellent options). Keep the slow cooker on low as you serve. Garnish with clove studded orange zest.
