Warming Winter Spirits

Irish Coffee Hot Chocolate

The classic combination of coffee and Irish whiskey makes this hot chocolate even more warming than usual.

Drambuie Caramel Apple Cider

You haven't had warm apple cider like this before.

White Wine & Elderflower Gløgg

Throughout December, Scandinavians meet outside to drink the hot spiced wine punch known as gløgg (pronounced "gleug") and sing carols—it’s like a cocktail party in the snow.

Bourbon Hot Toddy

While a hot toddy can’t cure a cold or the flu—as it was thought to do when the drink was invented in the late 19th century—it sure can soothe the soul.

Verte Chaud

This is Jamie Boudreau's version of a surprisingly delicious pairing.

Hot Buttered Rum

Dark brown sugar and a dollop of whipped cream give this buttered rum a deep, rich flavor.

Orange-Scented Mulled Wine

This traditional cold-weather drink is just what its name implies (to mull means to warm and spice): wine, usually red, infused with sugar, citrus, and spices, served warm.

Irish Coffee

This cocktail is always served in an Irish coffee cup, which is clear to show off the light cream against the dark coffee and has a handle to prevent burns from a hot glass.
