Winter Weather is perfect for gathering ’round the fireplace, enjoying the company of your loved ones, and sipping on a nice cocktail. But I’m not referring to a Bulleit on the rocks. I’m referring to drinks that’ll heat you up and the night. Warm, Winter Cocktails can be a wonderful treat, and here are our recommendations:
Hot Chocolate is a staple Winter beverage. It’s the perfect balance of cocoa, milk, and sugar. But by adding a little bit of liquor, this beautiful breakfast blend can turn into quite a tasty treat. The typical choice here would be a sweet liqueur, but you can add whatever you’d like and it would still be delicious. Whether it’s Bourbon, Red Wine, or even Rum, this chocolatey craft cocktail will become your new favorite.
Why simply have coffee when you can enhance that caffeine kick? Just add some whiskey, sweetener, and cream, and you’re good to go! A quick pick-me-up that tastes great. From dusk ’till dawn, an Irish coffee can be enjoyed any time of day.
Once fall rolls around, Apple Cider becomes a popular choice. Adding some spiced rum to this drink can make it a creative concoction. You can either buy bottled cider or make your own for ultimate taste control. Best served with a cinnamon stick or apple slice.
A Hot toddy is a common drink in Irish gastropubs. All you do is take a spirit like Whiskey or Brandy, mix it in some hot water, and add a sweetener, usually sugar or honey. Depending on who makes it, they may pour in hot tea or ginger ale as opposed to water for a richer taste. People utilize the toddy’s soothing, steamy properties to help relieve cold symptoms. The best kind of medicine!
