Indiana Boozey Slings, Modern Love

This cocktail is named after a David Bowie song by Kendall Lockwood of the ball & biscuit in Indianapolis.. The name was chosen because David Bowie has a spice mixture called “Spice Oddity.” The carrier for this spice mixture is Salem Spice Trade, and they have been trading and shipping spices since the early 1800s. The local aspect of this cocktail is the chai spice mixture. Also added to the tea are some mulling spices from Terra Spice Company located in South Bend.
