…because Mother Nature is a fickle little minx so kick back and (responsibly) enjoy a little warmth with our favorite winter drinks & cocktails this year.
Rum, rye, vodka, jalapeño and ginger. These are a few of my favorite things, especially when the winter bites. When you’re snowed in or snowed out, the one friend that’ll always be around can be found in some of these best winter cocktails. Make one or make ’em all. Either way, you’ll be drunk and thanking us later.
1. Favorite Winter Cocktail of the Year: The Easy Old Fashioned
The Old Fashioned is not a difficult cocktail to master. However, there are a couple of steps that can slow you down if you are trying to whip one up quickly.
2. Black Velvet Cocktail Recipe
Because champagne with Guinness is basically everything your party needs.
3. Egg Nog with Brandy Base
…or dark rum or bourbon. I just like Brandy. She’s a fine girl. What a good wife she would be. Main ingredients of 5 eggs, milk, nutmeg and more.
4. Adult Iced Tea with Bourbon and Mint
Because the bourbon keeps us warm and the mint makes us think that spring is just around the corner. But not really.
5. Stout Hot Chocolate Recipe
Wait, so beer in hot chocolate? The hell you say! Chocolate stout + chocolate chips + more = my long winters nap.
6. The Cranberry Ginger Mule
