When chilly weather settles into the Mile High, you’ve got to have a few go-to drinks on hand to warm your body and spirit. The residents of our Denver, Colorado, apartments love these cold-weather cocktails, and we think you will, too!
Leave the kids’ hot chocolate for another day. These adults-only hot cocoas are perfect for curing the winter blues. Thanks to a bit of brandy and creme de cacao, your body will feel warm and toasty long after the liquid is gone. Be careful not to drink too many! You’ll definitely want to slurp these cups slowly.
If you plan to entertain during a blizzard-inspired snow day, this is the cocktail you’ll want to have on-hand. It’s got just enough child-like whimsy to tug on your heartstrings, but the ingredients are definitely only intended for those 21 and up.
Having trouble sleeping? Simply looking for a way to pass the time as you sit by the window and watch the snow fall? Hot vanilla milk will calm your nerves and put you right to sleep when it’s time to lay your head on the pillow.
Warm dark rum will warm your body from your toes to your eyelashes, while the honey and ginger rush in to provide certain healing effects to the body. If you’ve got a stuffy nose or think you’re coming down with a cold, a chai-spiced hot toddy will help clear the airways and make breathing a little easier.
Nobody said every wintry drink has to be warm. A cranberry orange yule mule incorporates plenty of holiday flavors while keeping true to the cold copper cup that traditionally houses mules. Toss some fresh (or frozen) cranberries on top, and you’ve got a beautiful cup that’s meant to make this season brighter. This is a great drink to offer if you’re serving up a holiday brunch.
