Booze to Warm Up or Winter with Alcohol

Winter is a time to stay inside, get cozy and dream about the year to come. I often have a better time when I do so curled up on the couch with a blanket and something tasty in a glass. Some times just cozying up with a cup of something warm that has just a bit of booze in it helps to get those dreams expanded to be big grandiose?

You can start the day by giving your coffee some kick with an Irish Coffee

  • 1 oz Irish (or Scotch) Whiskey
  • 3/4 mug Coffee
  • Whipped Cream to top


If decaf is more your style, let me introduce you to the tranquil Hot Toddy

  • 1 oz brandy or whiskey
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 1/4 lemon
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 1 herbal tea bag


If you want a bit of spice to that tea of yours, try a Tipsy Chai Tea Latte

  • 1 1/2 oz Homemade Chai Liquor*
  • 2/3 mug Steamed Milk
  • Nutmeg on top for flare

*Chai Liquor

  • Brown Sugar 1 1/24cup
  • Chai tea 1 1/2 cup
  • Boiling Water 5 1/2 cup
  • 4 cups vodka


If something with a bit more sweetness is your style try for a Hopscotch

  • 1 1/2 oz Butterscotch Schnapps
  • 1 Lemon wedge
  • Hot water to fill the glass


And for those of you that love chocolate, how about an Orange Hot Chocolate.  It’s a hot a drinkable version of those chocolate oranges that you “Whack & Unwrap!”

  • 1/2 mug Hot Chocolate
  • 3/4 oz Grand Marnier or Triple Sec
  • 3/4 oz Godiva or Baliey’s Chocolate Liquor
  • Whipped Cream to top
