Is there anything better than cozying up by the fire with your significant other in one arm and a warm and delicious cocktail in the other? We think not. Keep in mind that you can treat hot drinks just as you would any other boozy cocktail and you’ll be on your way to the perfect winter night. Check out a few of our favorite recipes below:
Salted Maple Butter Cider: ever have a spiked cider? Ever have a hot buttered rum? This drink combines the two classics in one earthy cider and it’s the perfect match for any dark rum. Rim the glass with lemon juice and Maldon salt to bring all of the flavors together. Recipe here: http://bit.ly/2kbWjKq.
Amaro Hot Chocolate: you can make the kids a regular hot chocolate, but for the adults you’ll want to step it up a notch. Combine cocoa powder with semisweet chocolate chips and add a dash of bittersweet amaro. And don’t forget to top it off with fresh whipped cream and Angostura bitters.

Peppermint Patty: an easy, but a goodie. Spike a classic hot chocolate with a few splashes of peppermint schnapps. It’s refreshing and makes for a delicious dessert.
Winter Blizzard: like the sound of the Peppermint Patty? Then you’ll love the sound of this. Take your favorite whiskey and mix it with hazelnut and Irish cream liqueur - oh, and don’t forget the coffee! Recipe here: http://bit.ly/2kcaS0H.
Tom and Jerry: no, we’re talking about the TV show here. We’re talking about eggnog served hot. It enhances the flavors and brings out the spices. Recipe here: http://bit.ly/2kbYdLr.
Winter Spiced Old Fashioned: take 2 ounces of your favorite bourbon and pour it into a rocks glass over ice. Add 2 dashes of orange bitters, 2 dashes of aromatic bitters and 1/2 ounce of winter spiced simple syrup (simmer 1:1 simple syrup with clove, cardamom, cinnamon and nutmeg) and stir. Garnish with a fresh cinnamon stick and treat your taste buds!
