Warming Winter Cocktails

Warming Winter Cocktails

There is definitely a cold snap out there. So light the fire and stay warm with some delicious warm winter cocktails. I’ve put together three, simple to makecocktails you can try at home. So for chocolate and spice and all things nice read on.

Chamomile Hot Toddy

This is comforting and soothing if you have picked up a cold although it tastes just as good even if you haven’t! Chamomile is delicate and floral and will have you thinking of spring while the brandy warms you heart and spirits. For this you can’t go wrong with Hennessy VS. Cognac

  • 35ml Brandy
  • Chamomile tea
  • Lemon wedge
  • Honey (to taste)
  • Cinnamon sticks (optional)

Add the lemon wedge, honey,cinnamon stick and brandy to a mug and topwith chamomile tea.

Hot Buttered Rum

This is a warming and luxurious classic winter cocktail. Don’t get put off by the butter, this is smooth creamy and very easy to drink. A dark rum like Old Sea Dog works well here for that deep rich molasses flavour but if you prefer something lighter a golden rum like Havana Club 3 Year Old will give you more lifted delicate flavours.

  • 35ml Rum
  • 1 Teaspoon sugar
  • 1 Table Spoon of Unsalted Butter
  • Pinch of Ground Cinnamon
  • Pinch of Ground Nutmeg
  • Hot water

Mash butter, sugar and spices into a paste in a mug. Add rum and top with hot water. Stir vigorously then sit back and enjoy.

Tequila Hot Chocolate

For something a touch sweeter but still keeping those warming spices try this Tequila Hot Chocolate recipe. Delicious chocolate and tequila, warming and cosy, what’s not to love! Try it with some Jose Cuervo Especial Gold Tequila.

  • 35ml Tequila
  • Hot Chocolate of Choice
  • Pinch of Salt
  • Pinch of Cayenne Powder
  • Marshmallow (Optional)
  • Whipped Cream (Optional)

Prepare hot chocolate in a mug according to package directions. Add Tequila, Salt and Cayenne. Stir and top with a marshmallow or whipped cream.
