Early on in the Cocktail Culture archives you will find a lovely post of a Winter Warmer recipe. With the zero degree weather settling in and the cold wind howling outside, I thought it necessary to dig up some more winter cocktails to warm me up until the cold finally passes…only two more months until the first day of spring!
Warm drinks like tea, hot chocolate and hot apple cider all work wonders at warming me up during the winter months, and they work even better when spiked with your favorite booze!
- 2 parts Hiram Walker® Original Cinn Cinnamon Schnapps
- 5 parts hot apple cider
Whiskey is also a go-to choice of mine when looking for a cocktail to help me fend off Old Man Winter.

- 1 part Jameson Whiskey
- 1/2 part Hiram Walker Pumpkin Spice Liqueur
- 1/4 part Chai
- 1-1/2 part Heavy Whipping Cream

Place liquids in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake to blend and chill. Strain into a cocktail glass rimmed with cinnamon and sugar.
Try to stay warm everyone and enjoy!
