Whether you’re drinking with friends or enjoying a beverage alone, everyone loves a themed drink that reminds them of the best time of year. Check out these alcoholic drinks to keep you warm and toasty this winter.
Boozy Hot Chocolate
Do you remember drinking hot cocoa by the fire as a child? Bring that nostalgia into adulthood with a rich, decadent boozy hot chocolate. Prepare your drink as you usually would, but add in your favorite mint vodka or spiced rum for an extra kick. Top it off with marshmallows, peppermint flakes, and whipped cream for that finishing touch.
Orange Hot Toddy
As winter’s hottest citrus fruits, blood oranges are the perfect ingredients to upgrade your hot toddy into a seasonal cocktail. Instead of lemon, mix orange with honey and your favorite whiskey with hot water for an alcoholic drink that will surely keep you warm and toasty this winter. Use a cinnamon stick to tie in a classic seasonal flavor everyone will want to taste.
Spiced Coffee Cocktail
Coffee and alcohol: two of the most essential drinks in many adults’ home bars. Mix the two for an out-of-this-world beverage that will thaw your soul. Brew some coffee and add Kahlúa, rum, or butterscotch liquor. Don’t forget to spice it up with freshly ground nutmeg or allspice for a flavor that will make you feel like someone wrapped you in a blanket.
No matter the time of year, you can’t go wrong with an old-fashioned. A favorite among alcohol experts, this classic cocktail is one you can easily transform into a hot winter beverage. Mix your choice of high-end bourbon with citrus, cherries, and a dash of bitters for a sophisticated drink anyone can enjoy at a formal event or with a group of loved ones.
Winter is the perfect time to put a spin on your favorite drinks by experimenting with alcohol. Stay warm this season with cocktails that feature classic flavors and high-quality ingredients.
