Winter Drink Recipes

Winter is finally here, and it is time to start making the perfect cocktails to warm you up! I came up with my top favorite drinks to either warm me up or to add some Winter fruit garnish to your everyday beverage. There’s a drink everyone from vodka to wine, we hope you enjoy!

Moscow Mule:

Mix the ingredients together with ice in a highball glass.

Manhattan’s:

  • 2 dashes angostura bitters
  • 1 ounce sweet vermouth
  • 2 1/2 ounces bourbon, such as Buffalo Trace
  • 1 maraschino cherry

Fill a short glass 2/3 full with ice. Add bitters, vermouth, and bourbon. Add cherry (and crush it against the side of the glass with a spoon). Stir.

White Russian:

  • 2 oz Vodka
  • 1 oz Kahlúa
  • Heavy cream
Add the vodka and Kahlúa to an Old Fashioned glass filled with ice. Top with a large splash of heavy cream and stir.

Pomegranate Champagne:

  • 1 teaspoon fresh pomegranate arils
  • 4 ounces Champagne
  • 1/2 teaspoon store bought pomegranate juice
Place fresh pomegranate arils, if using, into a Champagne flute. Pour Champagne into flute, add pomegranate juice. ( I like it this way but you can also add a teaspoon of cassis)

Muled Wine:

  • 1 half-bottle fruity red wine (such as Beaujolais or syrah)
  • 2 oz Bourbon or brandy
  • 2 to 3 Cinnamon sticks
  • 2 to 3 Star anise pods
  • 1 long strip Lemon or orange peel
  • 1 tsp. Sugar
Add all the ingredients to a small saucepan. Cook over low heat until warm (do not boil), remove from the heat and let stand for 5 to 10 minutes. Serve in mugs or punch cups, garnished with cinnamon sticks.
Let us know your favorite Winter cocktail and it’s recipe!
Cheers!
