In a clean mixing glass filled with ice, combine all ingredients and stir until well chilled. Strain into Nick & Nora glass, and garnish with skewered toasted marshmallow just before serving. Cheers!

King Cake Cachaça
Makes ~4 cups
• 1 liter cachaça (we used Avuá Cachaça)
• 2 scraped vanilla beans
• 2 handfulls toasted pecans
• 2 handfulls golden raisins
• 4 whole nutmegs, ground
• 2 whole cinnamon sticks

Combine all ingredients in a large airtight container, and allow to infuse for 5-7 days, agitating occasionally to infuse flavors. Be sure to hang on to the empty cachaça bottle. Strain through a cheesecloth or 200 micron filter before storing in the empty bottle, which can keep for 3 months at room temperature.
