Hot Toddy

The hot toddy is an iconic winter beverage. This festive drink is traditionally prepared with whiskey or brandy, which is stirred into a mug that contains hot water. Some of the most common additions to a hot toddy include freshly squeezed lemon and a tablespoon of honey. Other types of liqueurs, such as Averna, can be added to the toddy to provide it with a special flair.

Spiked Cider

Apple cider is a popular winter beverage for people of all ages. To make an adult version of your favorite apple cider drink, you can add brandy or bourbon to the mug. Some common spices that are used to create spiked cider include cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger.

Hot Buttered Rum

If you want to serve your guests a sweet and indulgent treat, you may want to consider whipping up a batch of hot buttered rum. Hot buttered rum starts with a mixture of sugar, butter, and spices. Once this base has been blended, rum and hot water are added to create the perfect winter cocktail.
