5 Spice Bourbon Punch

Originally from Serious Eats, this cocktail is warm and delicious any time of year. The original recipe (as below) is made into a punch, but I like to keep the ingredients separate and stir each drink to order using 2 parts bourbon to 1 part simple syrup with juice from 1/2 lime (fresh squeezed). The syrup scales well (double, triple) if you plan to serve more people.
